Here is an alphabetical list of authors I've read in the last
couple of years, along with some I remember well from
childhood.  You can take the links to purchase them from
Amazon.comand I will get some sort of kickback.  You
can also take the link to use the search box.

Yeah, I know... I need to get a real job.
