Ernest Cline recommends
Ex-Heroes (2010)
(Ex-Heroes, book 1)
Peter Clines
"I loved this pop culture-infused tale of shamed superheroes struggling to survive a zombie apocalypse in the ruins of Hollywood. It's 'The Avengers' meets 'The Walking Dead' with a large order of epic served on the side."
The Clockwork Dynasty (2017)
Daniel H Wilson
"The Clockwork Dynasty is my new favorite alternate history novel! It's like some fantastic hybrid of Highlander and The Terminator--or maybe a cross between I, Robot and The Difference Engine, with a dash of Blade Runner for good measure. It reads like classic steampunk on steroids. In other words, it's totally bad ass and you're going to love it."
Supermarket (2019)
Bobby Hall
"Bobby Hall has crafted a mind-bending first novel, with prose that is just as fierce and moving as his lyrics. Supermarket is like Naked Lunch meets One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest--if they met at Fight Club."
The Andromeda Evolution (2019)
Michael Crichton and Daniel H Wilson
"The Andromeda Evolution is both a kick-ass sequel and a loving tribute to one of the greatest science fiction novels ever written. Daniel H. Wilson has taken up Crichton’s mantle and reinvented the techno-thriller, by continuing the tale that invented that genre. This is a meticulously crafted adventure story, packed with action, mystery, wonder, and just enough hard science to scare the hell out of you. So good!"
Project Hail Mary (2021)
Andy Weir
"One of the most original, compelling, and fun voyages I've ever taken. Weir imbues every page of this rollicking adventure with an unabashed love and respect for science, while giving us a prescient glimpse of where it could take us and how it might save us."
