Lloyd Biggle Jr.
David R. Bunch
Jonathan Carroll
John Crowley
FORD, John
Edmond Hamilton
Zenna Henderson
William Hope Hodgson
Dean Ing
Gwyneth Jones (and any other writer with a surname beginning with J.)
James Patrick Kelly
Keith Laumer
Raphael Aloysius Lafferty

Are we missing anyone else who belongs on this list?

Oh, and something I forgot to add in my original request! Could you please make rec's for the best examples of works for the authors you rec'd? That'll help ensure the library collects the books they should. I'll be sure to publish the updated list on our "A Basic Science Fiction Library" list

Thanks again!
