The Science Fiction and Fantasy Reading Plan

This list is not book-oriented like the Classics Club list.  What I wanted to do is create a list of authors (most of whom I have never read before) and go from there.

Plan:  To read at least one major work or series by every author in this list.  There is no deadline for this personal challenge!

Author List:  This list is by no means comprehensive for this field.  It contains both old and new authors–those I could remember off the top of my head.  In fact, I am sure this will grow much longer as I add writers.
