New year, new author, for me: Thomas Ligotti's Songs of a  Dead Dreamer and Grimscribe. The plaudits and Jeff Vandermeer's glowing introduction give me high hopes.

It will be very interesting to hear your response. I have only read three or four of Ligotti's stories, so far, but I liked most of them, especially "Nethescurial" and the Poesque "Drink to Me Only with Labyrinthine Eyes"!
