Paul McAuley recommends
thumb
And Disregards the Rest (1992)
Paul Voermans
"Powerfully strange and apocolyptic and elegiac."
thumb
Celestial Dogs (1996)
(Marty Burns, book 1)
Jay Russell
"An acerbically funny collision between Hollywood lowlife and the gods and demons of Japanese mythology that's as stylishly gritty as Dashiell Hammett. Jay Russell is a major new talent."
thumb
Bikini Planet (2000)
David S Garnett
"A billion monkeys working on a billion typewriters for a billion years couldn't have come up with this one."
thumb
The Fall Of Tartarus (2004)
Eric Brown
"SF infused with a cosmopolitan and literary sensibility... accomplished and affecting."
