The Future Great Genre Writers...Who Are They Now?

While this blog has pretty much evolved into a crime fiction blog, I do still love SF. Over at SFSignal, there is a great post asking this question: Who Are the Tomorrow's Big Genre Stars? Check it out.

This, of course, brings up the question that would make it pertinent to crime fiction: Who are Tomorrow's Big Genre Stars for Crime Fiction? On my short list are folks whose books I have read or whose blogs I read regularly:

Christa Faust
Duane Swierczynski
Allan Guthrie
Charlie Huston
Megan Abbott

Who are your choices?

I have two friends, Doug Warren and Victoria Graydale, who I'd like to see on various lists of the future.

And, of course, I want my name on that list. We'll just have to see. It takes actual stories and books to make that list. Guess I'd better start producing faster...
