In happy news of the day, GGRM, he of A Song of Ice And Fire, rated Broken Monsters as one of nine novels he thinks you should be reading over at along with classics like The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula LeGuin and Nova by Samuel R. Delaney and new releases including Armada by Ernest Cline. And really, how can you argue with his great
 outspoken beardiness?

Martin’s Verdict: “Set amidst the urban decay of contemporary Detroit, this one has a vivid sense of place and a colorful and interesting cast of characters, but it gets very strange at the end, where the Lovecraftian elements come to the fore… I found it an engrossing read all the same, and I will be looking forward to whatever Lauren Beukes does next. She’s a major, major talent.”
