Debut Authors To Watch For

I posted a list in June of debut authors, so this is an update.

What this list IS: authors who have recently published their first book in the sci-fi/fantasy field.

What this list is NOT: my personal endorsement of these authors and/or their books (though I'm sure there are gems here or I wouldn't be posting this). This is NOT a comprehensive listing. Feel free to comment if you know a book/new author I've missed who's published in the past 3-4 months or if one of these authors shouldn't be on this list (mistakes happen).

As usual, there's no reasoning behind the order of the books.

Heart of Veridon - Tim Akers
The Drowning City - Amanda Downum
The Cardinal's Blades - Pierre Pevel (not his first book, but it's his first book translated from the French to make it to Canada)
Nights of Villjamur - Mark Charan Newton
The Stoneholding - James Anderson & Mark Sebanc (originally self-published a few years back under the author Mark James)
The Sad Tale of the Brothers Grossbart - Jesse Bullington
Peter & Max - Bill Willingham (the author of the graphic novel Fables)

Urban Fantasy
Indigo Springs - A. M. Dellamonica
The Better Part of Darkness - Kelly Gay
Close Encounters - Katherine Allred
Tempest Rising - Nicole Peeler
Three Days to Dead - Kelly Meding
Norse Code - Greg Van Eckhout

Science Fiction
Bitter Angels - C. L. Anderson
Harmony - C. F. Bentley
Eve: The Empyrean Age - Tony Gonzales
Darkscape: Redemption - R. Garland Gray (also writes romance, but it's her first science fiction novel so I'm including it here)
Elom - William Drinkard
