We're reaching the end of my part in the Cybils, but...

...I just realized, shocker of shocks, that I'm not feeling the least burned out on sci-fi or fantasy*. 

So, Sharon Shinn.  I've been meaning to try her books.  Where should I start?

Oh, and Lois McMaster Bujold as well.

And Connie Willis.  I've got to find my copy of The Doomsday Book.  I bought it almost a year ago, with every intention of reading it (of course) but it seems to have evaporated.

Suggestions, please.  Feel free to throw any other authors in there.

*Which is a good thing, because though we're close to the end, we're not at the end.
