Bruce Sterling recommends
thumb
Homunculus (1986)
(Langdon St. Ives, book 1)
James P Blaylock
"A writer of great vigor, charm, and perception."
thumb
Mindplayers (1987)
Pat Cadigan
"Has a bite like a silk piranha."
thumb
White Queen (1991)
(Aleutian, book 1)
Gwyneth Jones
"Thoroughly original, genuinely weird, and stuffed to bursting with deep-dyed genre virtue."
thumb
Corrupting Dr Nice (1997)
John Kessel
"Kessel's darkly comic vision is wackily funny, brilliantly cruel, and joitingly powerful - like silly putty cut with high tech plastic explosives."
thumb
Demons (2000)
John Shirley
"John Shirley accomplishes things that most writers would not dare to attempt."
thumb
Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom (2003)
Cory Doctorow
"He sparkles! He fizzes! He does backflips and breaks the furniture. Science Fiction needs Cory Doctorow."
thumb
Tropic of Kansas (2017)
Christopher Brown
"Tropic of Kansas is the tale of a politically desperate USA haunted by a sullen, feral teen who is Huck Finn, Conan and Tarzan. Because it’s Chris Brown’s own imaginary America, this extraordinary novel is probably more American than America itself will ever get."
