Lev Grossman recommends
The Windup Girl (2009)
Paolo Bacigalupi
"It's ridiculous how good this book is... Bacigalupi's vision is almost as rich and shocking as William Gibson's vision was in 1984... I hope he writes 10 sequels."
The Heroes (2011)
(First Law World, book 2)
Joe Abercrombie
"Imagine The Lord of the Rings as directed by Kurosawa."
The Circle (2012)
(Engelsfors Trilogy, book 1)
Sara B Elfgren and Mats Strandberg
"A stunning novel...very thrilling and very, very wicked. The Circle is Twilight by The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo."
A Guile of Dragons (2012)
(Tournament of Shadows, book 1)
James Enge
"I could read him forever and never get bored."
Vita Nostra (2012)
Sergey and Marina Dyachenko
"I first encountered VITA NOSTRA in 2009, and then, as now, I was stunned by what I read – not just by the story, which was a revelation to me in itself, but also by the vividness and fluency and power of Hersey's translation. VITA NOSTRA has become a powerful influence on my own writing. It's a book that has the potential to become a modern classic of its genre, and I couldn’t be more excited to see it get the global audience in English it so richly deserves."
The Retribution of Mara Dyer (2013)
(Mara Dyer, book 3)
Michelle Hodkin
"Deep, dark, passionate, and funny."
The Night Ocean (2017)
Paul La Farge
"Magnificent. The Night Ocean is an impossible, irresistible novel, a love letter to the unloveable that speaks the unspeakable."
Soleri (2017)
Michael Johnston
"Utterly Epic."
An Absolutely Remarkable Thing (2018)
Hank Green
"You're about to meet somebody named April May who you're immediately going to want to be best friends with. And bonus, she spends all her time having incredible adventures with giant robots and dream puzzles and accidental Internet fame. An Absolutely Remarkable Thing is pure book-joy."
The Bird King (2019)
G Willow Wilson
"The Bird King is marvelous in the deepest sense?a treasure-house of a novel, thrilling, tender, funny, and achingly gorgeous. I loved it."
