Linda Nagata recommends
Burn-In (2020)
August Cole and P W Singer
"Don't miss Burn-In! Singer and Cole have combined their expert knowledge of imminent technologies to create a riveting day-after-tomorrow thriller exploring our increasingly uneasy alliance with smart machines and the networked world that enables them. Burn-In captures the imagination, even as it takes a hard look at the challenges ahead."
A Song for a New Day (2019)
Sarah Pinsker
"Let freedom ring in the growl of an angry guitar chord! Sarah Pinsker’s A Song For a New Day is an absorbing tale of a quiet, all-too-believable American dystopia in which a passion for music becomes the secretive, surprising seed of rebellion."
Cry Pilot (2019)
(Cry Pilot, book 1)
Joel Dane
"In Cry Pilot, Joel Dane has imagined a fascinating high-tech future Earth where ecological collapse and runaway evolution have conspired to create enemies no army has ever encountered before. Told through the eyes of a young soldier seeking to escape a grim past, the action-packed plot holds tight to a human dimension."
