Awkward Authors
This is a site that I have dedicated to authors who are really quite awkward.. it makes going to the bookstore and library (or rifling through friends bookcases) that much more fun. My apologies if I've offended any awkward people.

Only two authors so far? Or did I miss the previous posts link?

I had no idea Terry Goodkind looked like that. Awesome. I hope you can keep this up.

Y'know, there are awkward non-fantasy authors, too.

Honestly, though, this just feels like shouting "NEEEEERRRRRDS!" You've got shots of the inside covers of the book and what looks like a C&Ped version of Jim Butcher's bio page. No commentary? No explanation of what you feel is so egregious?

What exactly is the purpose? It's not like they're hiding their appearance. It's not even like their appearance is terribly unusual. I mean, they'd stand out in, say, Mongolia or something, but other than being white dudes with long hair, what is it that makes them particularly awkward?

This list must include S.M. Stirling. Do not include Harry Crews unless you have a death wish.

I've always thought the caption under that picture of Terry Goodkind was hilarious. "He lives in a location. THAT IS ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW!"
