The authors here are ones for whom I have set up web pages with more information—an
automatically updated feed from a yahoo search, a bit of background, and a list of the most
prominent books by the author now in print.
These are all selected from the featured authors who I rate as outstanding,
around the world and
in the USA. As time permits, I'm adding
details for more authors, particularly focusing on those authors I have read
(or reread) recently. I'm including authors with recent new books, classic authors
worth rereading, and less-known authors who I think deserve more attention.
Here's my current list, last updated on
Feb 01, 2009
Eric Ambler – undoubtedly the leading thriller writer of
the mid-twentieth century. His portrayals of the years before World War II
in his classic novels range over Europe and the Mediterranean.
John Harvey –
Val McDermid says "John Harvey's Resnick novels reinvented the British police procedural."
His latest revives the Charlie Resnick series after a decade interlude.
Paula L. Woods –
There are only four novels in the series so far, but her Charlotte Justice series is
already getting praise such as that by Valerie Wilson Wesley:"No one captures the
glamour and grit of L.A. better than Paula L. Woods."
