Keep scrolling. One of these recommendations might just inspire your next hardcover or Kindle purchase.

"Normal: A Novel"
Famed graphic novelist Warren Ellis has written a taut techno-thriller set in the near future. In "Normal," an exhausted strategist uncovers a vast conspiracy while on holiday, after his roommate disappears, leaving only a pile of insects behind.
