Unread Authors Challenge

Pour of Tor of Sycorax Pine is hosting the second Unread Authors Challenge. Here are the rules:

  1. The challenge will run from August 1, 2008 to January 31, 2009. You may join at any time before or during those six months.
  2. During those six months, read at least SIX books by an author whose work you have never read before.
  3. You may choose six different "unread" authors to introduce yourself to, or you may choose just one or two and explore their work in greater depth.
  4. Authors may be drawn from any genre of literature. The only requirement is that they be authors whose work you substantially regret not having read yet.
  5. Your choices may overlap with other challenges you have underway.
Here are my picks. Possible starting titles in parentheses:

  1. Karen Rose (Don't Tell)
  2. Philip Pullman (The Golden Compass)
  3. Orson Scott Card (Ender's Game)
  4. Christine Feehan (Shadow Game or Wild Rain)
  5. Charlene Harris (Dead Until Dark)
  6. Carl Haasen (Tourist Season)

Looks like a good list. I can't believe there is anyone left who hasn't read His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman! I hope you like them as much as I did. I need to read Christine Feehan. Charlaine Harris and Orson Scott Card at some point as well. Am just too full up with challenges this year to take on any more sadly.
