If you're read my previous post about this, you'll know that I can't publish the complete list - despite the fact that I have it - due to copyright issues.
So why not help create the list? If you're on it, feel free to add details in the comments section and I'll then update the list. I've included a range of names of people included on the list, but not specified which number they come in at. The Top 10 are published on the Press Gazette site so they are reproduced in full here.
And feel free too to suggest names that you think should be on the list - whether you know them to be or not.
Ultimately I think it would be cool to have a list of far more than 50 names on it, with links to each writer's website and some decent descriptive text about their specialities and experience. I'll then re-organise it by specialism or alphabetically.
