Would this quiz be better with the yellow box, so that you can't just throw out author names without even looking at the clues? Or would that make it too hard?

I've heard Miéville's name, but am not familiar with his work. What would you recommend as a good place to start with him?

Sorry it took this long to reply. Un Lun Dun is a good one, and then The City and the City. From there it's safe to go to Perdido Street Station

Can't believe so few people know Robin Hobb. Beyond Tolkien, Pratchett, Martin and Rowling I always thought she was pretty much the staple of the genre.
