Topic: Greg's favorite current (current favorite?) fiction writers

Greg, as I believe I have stated in at least one prior post, you are currently among my top five. I am curious, however, as to who you currently like to read when you get a spare moment or two, among the authors who are still living and producing fiction? (No cheating, as in falling back on Asimov, Heinlein, and so on.)

And of course it needn't be restricted to science fiction. Feel free to tell us of your other interests, or guilty pleasures. For instance, Stephen King is one of mine, though he certainly is not among my top five.

Oh, and by the way, I can't help but think I have rather overused "currently" in this post, but I am damned if I can think of a synonym that conveys the same thing. "Contemporarily" is all I can come up with, and I think it is rather clumsy, especially since the site spell-checker doesn't even know the word. Can you think of a better synonym?

I have quite a stack of recent favorites, Kelly. I'm particularly fond of all the writers currently working on THE MONGOLIAD! (Shameless plug.)
