May 12: Ten Authors I REALLY Want To Meet.
This one was more difficult than I expected, many of my favorites are gone. Who are the authors you’d like to show a little love to?
Patricia Briggs. Awesome kick-butt werewolves and were-coyotes, and a fun sense of humor.
Lois McMaster Bujold. I adore her manic, off-the-wall hero so very much. And she built a world I’d actually want to live in.
John Green. Not only is he a good writer, he’s also an awesomely geeky and charitable human being.
Tanya Huff. So may wonderful characters and worlds to chose from! Love how inclusive her characters are, too.
Mercedes Lackey. A favorite author of my childhood. I so wanted a Companion!
Seanan McGuire. Lovely, dark fey worlds, and beautifully constructed relationships. And she writes some nifty horror, too!
Marcia Meara. Marcia has been a blog-buddy of mine for a while now, and I have edited three of her lovely books and one poetry collection. But she’s on the other side of the country, so I haven’t met her… yet!
China Mieville. These books make my brain hurt, but in a good way. Who comes up with Moby Dick with trains and burrowing moles? This guy.
Neal Stephenson. Such a twisty mind, he has to be fun to talk to. Though I would ask him why he does in one book what could be done in two or three.
