Happy Canada Day - who is your favorite Canadian Author?

To recognize July 1st as Canada Day, we'd like to recommend a couple of our favorite Canadian authors.

Louise Penny has this amazing mystery series featuring Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Surete du Quebec. Still Life is the first novel and it is set in a sleepy small town near the edge of the Vermont/Quebec border. The latest in the series - Bury Your Dead - comes out this September.

Tanya Huff is known for both her science fiction and fantasy work - memorable, strong characters making the most of the 'interesting' situations in which they find themselves. Her most recent release (Enchantment Emporium) features a young historian from the powerful Gale family taking over her missing grandmother's junk shop in Calgary - only to find that the Fey seem to be worryingly involved in the business and the disappearance. Some of you may remember the TV series Blood Ties, based on her characters in the Blood Books.
