David Benioff (City of Thieves) who, I'm sorry to say, only has two novels - since his last one came out in 2008, he's been preoccupied with screenplays, television and non-fiction.

Peter Heller - I'm only partway through The Dog Stars, but I'm astonished by the stark beauty and brutality, so wonderfully rendered in an odd sort of stream-of-consciousness first-person narrative, of a rare literary gem in what is normally a wasteland of a genre: post-apocalyptic fiction.

I also loved her fantasy Uprooted. I've read all of these since early December.

I've only just discovered Naomi Novik's wonderful novels! I started with her Spinning Silver, and I posted about it over on the Judaism forum: //www.city-data.com/forum/judai...-old-tale.html

Since then, I've read Uprooted, and I'm now into the second novel in the Temeraire series. Naomi Novik's characters are wonderfully crafted and emotionally compelling, as are her stories. I don't normally read fantasy novels, but I am truly hooked on these!

If anyone is familiar with any of these authors and would like to offer additional suggestions, that would be wonderful!
T. Greenwood is one of my favorite authors. I also like Ron Rash.

Don't know if she'd be considered 'new' but Donna Leon quickly became one of my favorites when I started reading her series.


I'm also fond of Anne Hillerman who's continuing father Tony's series about Navajo police in the American South West.
