Weekly Geeks #13: It's Time for Name! That! Author!

I've been neglecting Weekly Geeks lately, but this one looked really fun. I haven't been able to guess the authors on any of the posts I've read so far, so I'm going to follow MizB's lead and provide hints.

How many can YOU name, boys and girls?

1. Favorite author

HINT: She's only written two books since her 1992 debut, but they're both killer.

2. Author of the book I'm currently reading

HINT: The English translation of her latest book was just released in July.

3. An author I've met in person, albeit briefly

HINT: I think the stuff hanging on the walls behind him should be hint enough.

4. A YouTube clip of an author I've heard speak

5. The author of the book I've most recently finished

HINT: She's a former LA Times writer.

6a. Hottest authors (male)

6b. Hottest authors (female)

HINTS: In addition to being highly photogenic, both authors released incredible books in 2008, one set in Soviet Russia, the other in 1920s Hollywood.

I think that first author is Donna Tartt.

Absolutely right!

Loved The Secret History!

Donna Tarte is the only author I recognize.

I'm not very good at this.

I recognize the male hottie - Tom Rob Smith! Mmm.... I've been meaning to get to his Child 44 for forever now, but my library's copy is always check out. Sad.

I'm afraid I don't recognize any of them!

Sadly I don't know any of them. But in the video she says her name I don't remember her first name but I believe the last was Castalucci(sp?).

The first lady looks INTENSE.

Nobody's guessed yet, so I'll just go ahead and name the fellow with the bald head: Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man, Ex Machina, Runaways).
