I SO agree. And he's a genuine guy, too. He works hard to build up his fan base, and does a great job!

I've read "Kraken" by Mieville, but will have to check out Will Christopher Baer! I <3 learning about new authors!

Amy (aaammmyyy) Yes--I agree, China Mieville needs more love!

Also, Dennis Lehane. His Kenzie & Gennaro series is pure gold. Not to mention Mystic River and Shutter Island :-)

The Pirate Ghost (Formerly known as the Curmudgeon) (pirateghost) Tim Powers Author of Declare and The Drawing of the Dark. Tim Powers great. He is throrough in his research and his prose is down right lyrical.

I have to add Barbara Freethy to the list. She's a mainstream author gone indie and I can't get enough of her.

Well, I haven't read Tim Powers yet, but I do like sci-fi and fantasy.

If you haven't read him, I'd start with "Declare" (and tell me if he don't evoke a 1984 (ish) mood and feeling in the first 1/5 of the book.

Drawing of the dark is more like epic fantasy, set in historical Europe.

And the one I want to read is "The Anubis Gates" but that one isn't availible on Kindle yet.
