I recently discovered Charlie Stross[^], and I have to say that I love his Laundry series of novels. I never thought I'd see a book where the day to day mundane side of working with tech would meet with the world of Lovecraft.

One word of warning though - you must read the books in order. He does refer back to earlier books from later ones. I'm just working my way through The Rhesus Chart, and if you've ever worked with Scrum, you'll appreciate the humour. Heck, even if you haven't, you'll appreciate the stereotypes.
