15 SF/F authors

List 15 science fiction and fantasy authors who will stay with you always - don't think too hard about this - just do it. This is my list, in no particular order, of sf and fantasy authors who've written things that have thrilled me, made me think, taken me to other worlds:

1. Robert Heinlein
2. Issac Asimov
3. Lois McMaster Bujold
4. Mercedes Lackey
5. Steve Perry
6. Stephen Donaldson
7. Susan Cooper
8. Raymond Bradbury
9. Rod Serling
10. Frank Herbert
11. Roger Zelany
12. Alfred Bester
13. George R. Stewart
14. Dean Koontz
15. Michael Moorcock

*Note: I don't consider Stephen King a SF/F author but he is an author I will never forget.

Couldn't help sorting into a "favorite authors" list. Surprisingly tough list to write, somewhat amused at how different the two lists are (excellent people on your list, btw, reading Elric for the first time EVAR right now... ::chuckles::)

You gonna be at GenCon? I need to meet up and chat with you business-wise.

Yep, I'll be there. I'm arriving on Wednesday and staying through Sunday night. We can try to plan something now or later, let me know -- I think your schedule is probably more hectic than mine.
