Sci-fi & fantasy genre smasher books?
Looking for recommendations for good books that smash together scifi and fantasy. That's the broader question. Not so much Science Fantasy ala John Carter of Mars, Star Wars, etc.
In particular, I'm looking for a mix of cyberpunk and contemporary/urban fantasy. HP Lovecraft influence is a plus. I'm less interested in standard werewolf/vampire, celtic fae, angels/demons, or Tolkein/D&D mythologies.
For those who collect comic books - Hellboy (Mike Mignola) meets Ghost in the Shell (Masamune Shirow).
I've already heard about the Shadowrun RPG and its novels, so no need to mention it.
Thanks for any help.
