Richard K Morgan recommends
The Chains That You Refuse (2006)
Elizabeth Bear
"Elizabeth Bear builds her future nightmare tale with style and conviction and a constant return to the twists of the human heart."
From the Notebooks of Doctor Brain (2007)
Minister Faust
"Faust has pretty much invented his own genre. He's totally original, full of surprises."
The Modern World (2007)
(Castle, book 3)
Steph Swainston
"Steph Swainston's writing is as elegantly superior to most other fantasy as a samurai sword is to a flint dagger."
Wolfhound Century (2013)
(Wolfhound Century, book 1)
Peter Higgins
"Like vintage Miéville, but with all the violent narrative thriller drive of Fleming at his edgiest."
The Freeze-Frame Revolution (2018)
Peter Watts
"The Freeze Frame Revolution is the purest driven high concept SF . . . as vivid and carnal and profane as the headiest of high-end literature."
