less than two months Gentle Reader, we will learn who this years Nobel Laureate
in Literature will be. Following is a list of 94 writers listed for this year’s
speculation list. These 94 writers were chosen for a myriad of reasons;
however, at no point do I cement or affirm with any certainty that any of the
listed writers will receive the award. I have chosen the authors based off
personal taste, and careful consideration, after doing research and reviewing
of their work (on a limited basis) and believe they have no more or less of a
chance than any other writer who is considered in contention for the award.
