Ben H Winters recommends
The Midnight Guardian (2009)
(Millennial, book 1)
Sarah Jane Stratford
"Wickedly clever... vampires in Nazi Germany is a great idea, and the writing is every bit as good as the book."
IQ (2016)
(IQ, book 1)
Joe Ide
"Joe Ide has got all the pre-requisites of a great mystery writer: an acerbic wit, a craftsman's mastery of pace, and a clear-eyed but big-hearted view of humankind. His humble and low-key hero, a P.I. named IQ, is a joy to spend time with, and once you've hung out in this Los Angeles of two-bit thugs, half-baked capers, and big scary dogs, you'll be as excited as I am for a sequel."
The Impossible Fortress (2017)
Jason Rekulak
"Part love story, part coming-of-age tale, and part heist picture, The Impossible Fortress is an endlessly clever novel about friendship, heartache and computers - all rendered with the bright colors and buoyant spirit of Q*bert for the Commodore 64."
