Local author Ted Chiang is my favorite science fiction writer. He writes fascinating stories,which might seem dry and boring (topics include linguistics, math, the nature of time), but his writing style really connects you to his characters.

Night Watch is a time travel adventure starring Sam Vimes, our jaded film-noirish detective/reluctant aristocrat hero. The story opens as Sam and the vicious serial killer he is chasing are struck by magic lightning and thrown 30 years into the past, to the eve of a bloody street revolution. The plot gets complicated, the list of characters grows, and Pratchett throws in lots and lots of extremely British humor.
