Charles E Gannon recommends
American Craftsmen (2014)
(American Craftsman, book 1)
Tom Doyle
"American Craftsmen is a book filled with mages--the 'craftsmen' of the title--but at the center of them all is the archmage and word-sorcerer, Tom Doyle."
Witchy Eye (2017)
(Witchy Eye, book 1)
D J Butler
"Goblin Market meets Magical Musketpunk... A great ride that also manages to cover some serious cultural terrain."
The Golem of Deneb Seven (2018)
Alex Shvartsman
"A wonderful fusion of hard SF and melancholy wisdom."
Hell's Horizon (2020)
Jonathan P Brazee and Richard Fox
"So,if what you want is high-octane, high-fidelity, highest-quality Military science fiction, your search is over: sign on for the action in Brazee and Fox's Hell's Horizon. I'm sure you'll be eager to extend your tour."
Nucleation (2020)
Kimberly Unger
"An inventive, exciting page turner that mixes mystery, bleeding edge technological speculation, and the promise of a potential sequel. If Grisham was a better wordsmith and chose to write hard sf thrillers, it would look a lot like Kimberly Unger's gripping Nucleation."
