Jason M. Hough

Jason M. Hough is the New York Times bestselling author of The Dire Earth Cycle and the near-future spy thriller Zero World, which Publishers Weekly said is "a thrilling action rampage that confirms Hough as an important new voice in genre fiction.”

Recently I asked the author about what he was reading. Hough's reply:
As usual I'm devouring two books at once, because I'll do one in print when I have genuine reading time and the other as an audiobook when I'm driving or doing chores.

Right now in print I'm reading an advance copy of Scott Reintgen's Nyxia, which is a wonderful YA sci-fi novel about a planet with a unique and powerful element that the locals will only allow children to mine. It's extremely good and sports a great cast of characters.

On audio I'm listening to A Divided Spy by Charles Cumming, which is the 3rd book in his Thomas Kell spy series.I really enjoy these novels, which are much more calculating and cerebral than, say, a Jason Bourne thriller. Lots of great tradecraft and an extremely engrossing main character.
