The writers are: Gregory Frost, Jeff VanderMeer, Karen Joy Fowler, Cory Doctorow, Ellen Kushner, and Delia Sherman.
I'm most read up on Doctorow, Kushner, and Sherman. I'm trying to get up to speed on everyone. There should be an anthology with short stories from all of them!
I'm reading what I can from the library and from what I already have on hand. I may stop at a bookstore to pick up a few more, but I don't want to be lugging a bunch of books to California. So my plan is to buy most of them there, and then perhaps ship them back here. Especially if I've somehow acquired waaaaay too many books. Which is not outside the realm of possibility.
So far the one book I'm pretty sure I'm bringing to California is The Complete Idiot's Guide to Publishing Science Fiction. Not so much because Cory Doctorow co-wrote it (though that helps!), as because it's a good reference.
