I admit that I haven't really read sci-fi/fantasy for a while, but had no idea I was so out of touch. I haven't heard of any of these authors. Now that I'm out of my WWII reading frenzy, I'll check out some of the authors mentioned. Hooray for libraries. Thanks.

Great site for book reccomendations: www.alexlit.com

You spend half an hour entering your opinion (good, bad, OK) on any fifty books. It will compare your opinion to the thousands of people in it's database and reccommend books. If you like Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz, and Georgiana: Duchess of Devonshire, it will reccommend books that other people who liked those three items enjoyed. It's very cool and has lead me to a lot of new authors. Their recommendations tend to lean to F/SF due to the nature of the internet reading population, so it might help.
