Bruce Sterling recommends

The Extractionist (2022)
Kimberly Unger
"Our heroine is a business consultant, but we live in her cyborg brain, we see every detail through her augmented eyes, and the future world she haunts is crammed with invention to the point of psychedelia. I quite enjoyed this."
thumb
Stormland (2021)
John Shirley
"Stormland is a headlong sci-fi thriller about the punk squalor of post-disaster situations. It's also got some remarkably interesting speculative technologies, so I'd say that Mr. Shirley is quite on top of his game with this one."
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."
