6 more new authors? you are going to catch me, because I signed up for the 2nds challenge, to reread some of my new authors.
That's two challenge that can't overlap!

Pour of Tor said...

What a phenomenal list, 3m! I haven't read ANY of the authors you name, and am feeling a strong urge to add them to my list.

What a great list! I completely forgot about my copy of History of Love (as yet unread) until I saw this, and Middlesex might have to go on my list as well. And Interpreter of Maladies...

I can join this one! I'll have two other challenges finished by September.

I've read #3 and #5 and several of your alternates. I hope you won't mind if I borrow a few things from your list for my list!

Thanks, all! Looking forward to reading these authors.

Dewey, borrow away!

I loved the movie A Scanner Darkly, but my husband, a great fan of Dick's short stories, just called his novels "painful." So I won't be borrowing that after all. I thought I'd come tell you in case you wanted to avoid painfulness and save Dick for a short stories challenge. ;)
