I noticed in all that list, there are only 2 entries for this century in 2001 and 2002. So everything from the last 16 years is crap? What if you don't want to write those type of novels? Where were the genre first lines? The audience has changed, they by and large prefer genre not literary. The principals are sound, but if you write genre, these examples could confuse such a writer. Good example for literary writers though.
