Mamatas, Nick  
The Last Weekend
There aren't many sane humans left in San Francisco, but Billy has found his vocation trepanning reanimated corpses, peddling his only published sf story, and drinking. Then he discovers both his girlfriends are homicidal revolutionaries and collides with a gang of Berkeley scientists gone berserker. And when the Big One shakes the city to its core, the crumbled remains of City Hall can no longer hide the awful secret lurking deep in the basement. Can Billy unearth the truth behind the demise of the US and the city's survival? And will he destroy what's left of it in the process?

The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage: The (Mostly) True Story of the First Computer
Black & white. In our reality, Charles Babbage planned but never built a mechanical calculating machine, and in 1842, when Ada, Countess of Lovelace, translated a description of Babbage's plans for the machine, she added annotations three times longer than the original work, and her footnotes contained the first appearance of the general computing theory. In this graphic novel's alternate Victorian England, these two brilliant mathematicians team up to build the Difference Engine, and then use it to build runaway economic models, battle the scourge of spelling errors, explore the wilder realms of mathematics, and fight crime for the sake of both London and science.
