Sci-fi and Fantasy Author A-Z Challange

A-Z

By

Published January 04, 2014

Happy 2014 everyone!  It’s a new year and that means new possibilities and challenges. I for one have decided to attempt an author A-Z challenge.  I’m going read 26 Sci-fi or Fantasy books over the course of the year each by a different author and all by authors I’ve never read before.   It’s going to be a lot of fun at least I hope so.

I’ve compiled an initial list over the Christmas holidays although I had to make Q and X wildcards as I wasn’t able to find any authors with those letters.  But be that as it may, I think I’ve got some interesting reading ahead.  Feel free to join in or attempt your own author A-Z challenge. Of course the list is subject to change and flux and I might very well make substitutions if  something better comes along or a sword and laser pick falls in line with my next planned read.
