Not the best turnout, but at least decent, I think. Names with exclamation points are those authors I've met, and underlines names are those I added. I haven't bolded those names where I only own short stories in anthologies or magazines, but have bolded e-books.

Also, it's a little disingenious to include TNH and Farah, since they've write non-fiction.

ETA: Linda Evans, PC Hodgell, Sarah A Hoyt, Mercedes Lackey, KD Wentworth. Also added a few more books own and authors read.
