The Ranting Dragon have come up with a list of Top 10 Fantasy Authors to watch out for. The following has been taken from their website, so follow the link to get their full article.

1. Sam Sykes
Our top spot goes to Sam Sykes, the man best known for his debut novel Tome of the Undergates.

2. Patrick Rothfuss
The man. The legend. The beard. Rothfuss exploded on the fantasy scene in 2007 with his debut novel The Name of the Wind. He has a way with words and humor that keeps you reading.

3. N.K. Jemisin
We loved both her novels, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms and The Broken Kingdoms. Even if you haven’t had the chance to read them, you won’t be able to deny the intelligence of N.K. Jemisin after you read some of her blog posts. Jemisin often provokes her readers to think about issues in a new way, and her blog doesn’t center only on fantasy and the craft of writing.

4. Mark Charan Newton
Newton is not simply a young fantasy author. He knows both sides of the business, starting as a young editor for an imprint called Black Flame and then going on to help create Solaris before selling it in 2009, the year his popular novel Nights of Villjamur was published. 

5. Peter V. Brett
Peter V. Brett is famously known for writing his debut novel The Warded Man on his mobile phone while commuting on the subway in New York City. 

6. Kameron Hurley
If you’ve read our website at all, you can safely assume that we think that Hurley’s debut novel, God’s War, is awesome. And by proxy, that the woman herself is awesome.

7. Blake Charlton
Being an author of fantasy is usually interesting enough for us, but between his writing career and medical school obligations, Charlton has, without a doubt, the most interesting life of the authors in this list. Best known for his epic novel Spellwright, Charlton has much to say on many topics, including writing with dyslexia. 

8. Catherynne M. Valente
Valente is known for her poetic prose, refreshing voice, and incredible imagination. She’s also quite opinionated, intelligent and ambitious with her works. Not only does she write novels and short stories, she’s also an esteemed poet. Her latest novel Palimpsest was nominated for the Hugo in 2010. If you’re looking for an author who will expand your mind, challenge your ideas, and say what she thinks, you have to follow Valente.

9. Mary Robinette Kowal
Regardless of whether you have heard of Mary Robinette Kowal, know that she’s a fantasy world veteran who served as secretary and then vice-president of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. She’s also written numerous short stories and her debut novel, Shades of Milk and Honey, has been described as a Jane Austen novel with magic.

10. Peter Orullian
Peter Orullian is the new kid on the block. His epic debut, The Unremembered, will be released in April.
