Author Recommendation Poll

The last time I tried this proved sufficiently informative that I have to inflict a bunch more authors' names on you already. But after this, I'll be finished reprioritizing my entire reading list!

Like last time, all of the following are authors I've never read any books by, but have been planning to try reading books by. Some of them write fiction and some of them write nonfiction.
