Yay Mark Leyner. I don't actually own any of his books, but i've read some... Who is Bez? Russ Kick?

Restraining myself to list only 10 authors was tough. And I didn't namedrop nihilistic_kid like I usually would. Nick Mamatas Nick Mamatas Nick Mamatas, or postmaudlin either.

O'Reilly? (oh really?) haha pun ha ha... ok no.
I got some Dante too. I mean who doesn't. :) I like his cake-layered hell. The frosting is kind of an acquired taste. I have some Ballard as well, but have no idea who Max Cannon is (obviously an assumed name, i mean MAX CANNON is like WOLF BLITZER), nor Bruce Bethke. Or Graham Joyce either. Edify, plz.

Sometimes us mens like our manly assumed names. Why, back in my prime I was known as STUD BEEFPILE.

Re: Manly Assumed Names
You'd like the MST3K episode for Space Mutiny. It offers great manly gems. A few choice selections:

Thick McRunfast
Brick Hardmeat
Blast Thickneck

Bruce Bethke is responsible for Cyberpunk! and Headcrash. Headcrash should be required cyberreading, though Gibson and P.Dick would probably throw a fit.

I only own one Graham Joyce book, The Tooth Fairy. I added the author off of the single title because The Tooth Fairy is an awesome read. You'd probably like it.

As for Max Cannon... two words: Milkman Dan.
