Debut Authors from May to September 2010

My debut author lists will - if all goes well - become a monthly feature on SF Signal starting next month. In the interests of having those posts all follow the same format, I'm posting the titles I've been collecting since May (when I last posted a debut list). I tried to be complete, but I'm sure I missed some, so if you know an author that fits the following criteria please tell me.

1) published with a press carried in bookstores (sorry, it's too overwhelming to try to find out self-published authors and smaller presses - I do the lists based on what comes into the store, which will be changing...)
2) had their first book published between May and September 2010 in the SF/F/H fields.

Sorry, these lists are short so I'm not bothering to alphabetize them, but I will sort them by genre. And while I try to verify these are debuts, I have been wrong before, so if you notice a mistake please tell me in the comments. And since it's come up before, these are debuts with regards to the Canadian market (publication dates sometimes differ by country). Lastly, this is the second list where I've included Horror. I haven't been watching it as closely so I know I'm missing some books in that category.
