Recommendation: The Laundry Files by Charles Stross

It’s been awhile since my last post, and it is mostly because I feel overwhelmed by the thought of posting something interesting, or “good”. So, instead of worrying about that, I’m going to post things that work for me.

A book series recommendation is on the docket today.cover of the artocity arhives

Do you like science fiction? Fantasy? Do you like the idea of reading about an IT nerd mired in bureaucracy and Lovecraftian horrors?

If so, the Laundry Files by Charles Stross are here for you.

Starting with the Atrocity Archives, you are introduced to Bob Howard, part of IT support for the Laundry – a British organization here to save us from unknown horrors. He is looking to become a field agent, but then things get complicated. The plot is complex, but not overly complicated, and any clichés are included with tongue firmly in cheek.

These books are scary, funny, and riveting. All told from Bob’s perspective, you get to enjoy terrifying events

And if you are interested, I’d highly recommend trying the audiobooks, they are what I’ve been “reading” and the reader, Emery Gideon, is great.
