Yesterday, the topic of Top 5 Sundays at Larissa’s Bookish Life is Authors who write more than one great book series.

1, Lois McMaster Bujold
She’s written the long running Vorkosigan scienc fiction series, which is centered on people rather than fight scenes or techinical jargon, the epic fantasy series set in the five gods universe (Curse of Chalion, Paladin of Souls, and the Hallowed Hunt), and a romace fantasy series the Sharing Knife.

2, C. J. Cherryh
She’s written several series in both science fiction and fantasy. I’ve only read her SF books so far, though.

3, Elizabeth Bear
I haven’t yet read all of her books, either. She seems to write books which blend SF and fantasy, for example the Edda of Burdens which is set in a post-apocalyptical world and draws inspiration from the Norse myths, and the Jacob’s Ladder trilogy set in a generation star ship where the society resembles a fantasy society.

4, Kristine Kathryn Rusch
I’ve read so far just her science fiction series. In the Retrieval Artist series Miles Flint is an expert tracer who seeks out people who have wanted to disappear for one reason or another. Flint tracks them down when something has happened, for example new evidence has been found. In the Diving universe the main character dives old space ship derelicts to find what maybe inside.

5, Cherie Priest
My favorite of Priest’s work is her Steampunk series starting with Boneshaker but she’s also written horror and urban fantasy.
