Five top books about futuristic California

Laura Lam was raised near San Francisco, California, by two former Haight-Ashbury hippies. Both of them encouraged her to finger-paint to her heart’s desire, colour outside the lines, and consider the library a second home. This led to an overabundance of daydreams. She relocated to Scotland to be with her husband, whom she met on the internet when he insulted her taste in books. She is the author of gaslight fantasy and near-future thrillers. Her latest novel is Shattered Minds.

One of the author's five favorite books about futuristic California, as shared at
All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders

Another one I really need to read. Have nothing but excellent things and I really enjoyed Charlie’s articles on io9. This is an interesting blend of sci fi and fantasy set in San Francisco, where Charlie lives. It’s magic versus technology. It’s two friends who go on wildly different paths. They’re both living in an unstable world where magic and science clash, much like the two main characters. It looks like a brilliant blend of genres and I swear I’ll get to it soon.
