Brian Panowich recommends
Knuckleball (2015)
Tom Pitts
"Knuckleball is a bruiser of a story that reads as fast as the title implies and sits heavy in your mind long after you've read the last."
Lightwood (2017)
(Judah Cannon, book 1)
Steph Post
"Brilliant...Lightwood solidifies Steph Post as the official voice of working class literature in Florida, akin to what Daniel Woodrell has done for Missouri, or Ron Rash for the Carolinas."
The Woman From Prague (2017)
(Ash McKenna, book 4)
Rob Hart
"Hart is a master storyteller."
Where the Sun Shines Out (2017)
Kevin Catalano
"I'll dare to bet this novel will be talked bout for many, many years to come."
Never Turn Back (2020)
Christopher Swann
"An intelligent and layered mystery that had me burning through the pages. The balance of darkness and redemption without losing a bit of the tightrope tension is a skill most writers achieve only after an entire career."
Impacted (2021)
Benji Carr
"Georgia scribe Benji Carr isn't just breaking down barriers with his bullet train of a novel, IMPACTED, he's kicking them in with steel-toed boots. Carr takes the modern thriller to a higher level that challenges the reader to step out of their comfort zone and grab the tail end of a goddamn lightning bolt. Novels like IMPACTED are not written to be fodder for pop culture, then put back on the shelf. They are written to blow open the status quo, like a chunk of literary C4, and force the reader to think – while their heart pounds harder and faster with every turn of the page. If a new and fiercely original voice in fiction is something that interests you, try on some Benji Carr. IMPACTED knocked my dick in the dirt. And I'm sure this is just the beginning."
