    There's got to be dozens of predominantly SF writing male authors in the US.

    Jeez, more clues then I guess.

    I have read 5 of his books over the past few years and enjoyed them all for the most part.

    Hmmm...I know you've read Chris Woodring over the last few years. And also another military SF series, of which I can remember neither the name of the author nor of the series, but I do recall something about a space elevator? Any of these?

    Right, so SF books you have enjoyed: Do you mean a trilogy in a post-apocalyptic scenario, which I have also read and we don’t seem quite to agree on the entertainment level?:)

    It's Hugh 'Beefcake' Howey!

    Damn, Hugh Howey never even entered my mind! His name's like that of a Marvel comic book character. And I really thought he was one of those minor film actors.

    I'll take your turn with this relatively easy one. Who's the lady? She was the key character in one of the long-running spin-offs of a major television series.

    Is that Kate Mulgrew?

    Yep! It was too easy. Your turn now, if you want.

    Ok. Who is this?

    This is an easy one since she's high profile and a darling of the SF elite and has often been in SF news the last few years. Forget how to spell her first name, but she's Okarofor (sp?). Plus, she won an award recently...either the Hugo or the Nebula, can't remember. I waive my right to post next.

    I thought this time we could go for a cover.
    US author with a background in Arts, Experimental Psychology and who wrote a dissertation about animals responses to novel stimuli.
    This author combines the technological and hard-edge of SF along with the sociological and psychological themes relating to soft SF.

    Okay, it seems no one's attempted this one at all. I have this cover so I know the author. Do you want to add another picture or give more clues?

    Well, just in case...
