Who are the hot SF/F and horror authors? [Nov. 10th, 2011|06:19 pm]

Was in at Cooma/Monaro Books and Music today, chatting away with Sam, who does a lot of the ordering. She's wanting to expand the science fiction, fantasy, and horror section, and figured she'd ask me for some names. Gave her a couple but it had been a long day and I'm in no way up with the genres at the moment, so I said I'd ask my friends.

So, who is writing the good stuff at the moment? And what are the must reads of the last five or ten years?

Assume I know nothing, you're close to right, and you'll be helping a very good rural bookshop become that much cooler.

PS, feel free to suggest any really fabulous non-genre titles.

Fantasy: Another vote for Carriger's The Parasol Protectorate - good stuff.

Trent Jamieson's DeathWorks, and Glenda Larke's Watergivers trilogies are fantastic.

And another vote for Tansy Rayner Roberts.

Also, get her into some of the small press stuff. CSFG, Ticonderoga, Twelfth Planet Press, Coeur de Lion.
