The one that I'm reading at the time?? :D

KG MacGregor is high on the list, and Shamim Sarif stuff is nice too. And, have any of y'all read 9th Judgement by James Patterson. I've read the whole series (which I only sorta recommend doing, though the books are fast reads) from the beginning, and when I stumbled onto the 9th book in the Women's Murder Club series, I was like, 'well.... why didn't he (and his co-author) do this ages ago...'

Anyone else?

Jeannette Winterson has to be my favorite.

This isn't a field I read widely in, but am always happy to read in. I have read everything by Nicola Griffith -- both science fiction and more mainstream thrillers.

Ooh, yes, Nicola Griffith is on my TBR list (too big for a pile, if it were a pile the pile would fall over... :)) I read The Blue Place and thought it was good, but then life and all sorts of stuff got in the way and then I started on a different series and haven't gone back to her.

>3 amysisson: If you're looking for more 'literature'ish books in the genre, more like Griffith, and less like a KG MacGregor or Peggy J. Herring I always suggest Sarah Waters or, at least, her early books, the last few have been a bit more.... ehh... not awesome!

I really enjoy Kim Pritekel's books. They tend to be more 'substantive' than most lesbian fiction, though I wouldn't go so far as to call them literary.

>4 DanieXJ: I agree about Sarah Waters. I loved her early books but haven't cared for the last 2-3.

>5 Morigue: Crap, we're supposed to be recommending substantive books, shoot... :)

And Pritekel's books are on my TBR list (I mean, c'mon, one of her books is titled 'Twilight' heh... :D)

Don't know if she qualifies as such, but Jacqueline Carey does heterosexual, homosexual, and bisexual relationships quite well.

Well, when I finally get done with BloodLine (not LezFic) as well as a boatload of other stuff from the library I have 1st Impressions and The Candidate waiting very patiently on my shelf. I know they're not the best ever written, but I think I've enjoyed other Tracey Richardson books in the past (or, maybe I'm getting her confused with someone else). Ah well.... should be fun, if I ever get to them.

Sarah Waters is my favorite, but Emma Donoghue and Ivan E. Coyote come close. Plus, emily m. danforth and Rae Spoon (not a lesbian--queer) have managed to get pretty high on the list with only their first book each!

Pat Califia (if rough sex/SM isn't okay with you, then this isn't for you. if it is okay, then this is the best)
Dorothy Allison
Sarah Waters
Emma Donoghue
May Sarton
Alison Bechdel
Leslie Feinberg
Bear Bergman

I need to get to Nicola Griffith and Ivan Coyote pretty quickly it seems.
