There are only four of them unfamiliar to me.

Thanks for posting the list so I can begin reading those four.

BTW, I'm ready to start seeing more from one in particular, and that would be Nadia.

A wide range of styles, too. Cat is the least horror-oriented, but some of her imagery is quite dark.

You forgot one. Caitlin R. Kiernan. Totally unique, in my opinion.
