Ellen Kushner

Ellen Kushner is an acclaimed fantasy novelist, the host of the NPR program Sound and Spirit, and a popular public speaker and teacher. According to her website, she’s also hard at work on a musical theater project and a stage show on Jewish women’s history. She has said that she was the originator of the term “mannerpunk”, and her book Swordspoint is certainly a seminal work in that genre.

Well... some of her stuff's a little affected, like a lot of high-minded literary fantasy. You just need to be in the mood for that kind of thing.

Limited, although there was a hardcover version of Swordspoint released in 2006.
