David List is not complete due to some titles not found by GoodReads :-( in addition to the many wonderful short stories that cannot be added. Here is the full list

Mir You can add books to goodreads if you want -- the option should appear after you search and don't find the book.

Also, Tamora Pierce and Maria Snyder are American, not Australian.

Mir Good work, Skyla. Sheesh, what is up with some people?

I'm not offhand finding any evidence that Jennifer Estep is Australian. She describes herself as "Southern" and is a member of the RWA, which seem like indicators that she is from the US?

And Alyxandra Harvey appears to be Canadian.


message 4: by Mir (new)

Mir I get people gratuitously adding things to "best [whatever]" lists, but fake Australians? Huh?

Oh, I added a couple others for deletion in my comment above (you replied while I was editing it).


message 5: by Mir (last edited Nov 24, 2014 12:38PM) (new)

Mir Yeah, and Daniel Russell is from the UK. I figure if the author lives or lived in Oz while writing that's close enough. But some of these people have no connection that I can find.
