Librarything picture meme

Tried this last night but it didn't work, so here goes again (for the entertainment of those not in Denver):

These are the authors in my Librarything gallery who I have actually met (for values of in-person encounter more substantial than getting an autograph). How many can you identify? The photographs are not always flattering, but I think accurate enough!

4, 6 and 13, I think, being Ms Clarke, Mr Cornell, and (less certain on this one) Mr Langford.

Yup, Dave Langford. I've met several of them myself including him.

1 is I(M)B, the background being something of a clue even if he weren't easily recognised. 20 is autopope aka Charlie Stross.

I get - Iain Banks, ?, David Brin, Susannah Clarke, ?, Paul Cornell, Hal Duncan, ?, ?, James Hogan (guessed from the name plate), Edward James, ?, David Langford, Ian R. MacLeod, Ken MacLeod, a scarily young Ian McDonald, Farah Mendlesohn, Patrick Nielsen Hayden, ?, Charlie Stross, Harry Turtledove?, Jo Walton, Peter Weston.

17 out of 23, of whom I reckon about 11 have a clue who I am.

And having done the cheat, I find that of the six I didn't get, four I don't know who they are anyway.

The same for me, except that I didn't get pnh - and I've met him, so I should have.

Of course, if they hadn't been in alphabetical order, it would have been a bit more difficult (though I think that I'd still have got all the ones I did, if a bit more slowly).

I probably wouldn't have been as confident of Tutrledove had they not been in alphabetical order, and probably would have stared for a long time at the young Ian Macdonald thinking "I know that person ..." But other than that, I'd have got them anyway, I think.

There's a bit of a give away in #10. ^___^

Banksie and Stross were about the only ones I recognised. I know people never look like you expect them to, but... that's Hal Duncan??!
