American writer Ian Tregillis knows his science: he holds a PhD in physics for his research into supercomputer simulations of radio galaxies. He also likes making things up and was described as “a major new talent” by A Game of Thrones author George RR Martin. 

His two trilogies, the Milkweed Triptych (Nazi X-Men vs British warlocks during WWII) and The Alchemy Wars (a Dutch-ruled 1920s with clockpunk robots, exploring faith and free will) are rip-roaring, page-turning fantasies that delve into deep issues.
