Anyone read these authors?

I'm a slow reader and I might never get to these authors so I just wanted to see if I could gather impressions of what certain authors are like in terms of characteristics and quality from this mostly discerning community.

Could you characterize the work of Count Stenbock?

Frederick Cowles?

Paul Hazel written a bunch of Celtic (epic?) fantasy novels often described by bemused readers as dreamlike and disturbing. Here's some quotes from the SF and Fantasy Encyclopedias

Quote
Finnbranch Trilogy makes use of some sf devices, though it is primarily a Celtic fantasy about a hero – and underworld god – named Finn, told in a dense, difficult style which nevertheless has very considerable power. The first two volumes, Yearwood (1980) and Undersea (1982), are moderately orthodox, though recounted with unconventional intensity, but the third, Winterking (1985), is set in an Alternate-History version of a contemporary America riven by the numinous presence of gods and threatened by terminal transformation; in this respect the book resembles John Crowley’s Little, Big (1981).

The language throughout is strikingly intense, allusive, dislocatingly dreamlike, vivid.

Both Finnbranch and The Wealdwife’s Tale operate at a level of originality rarely found in fantasy.
Bryan Thoa Worra is a Lao author who writes often Lovecraftian poetry but he doesn't come from the usual circles you'd expect or seem like an ordinary mythos writer.

Quote
An award-winning Laotian American writer, Bryan Thao Worra works actively to support Southeast Asian American artists. A transcultural adoptee, his writing is recognized by the Loft Literary Center, the Minnesota State Arts Board and the National Endowment for the Arts. He represented Laos as a Cultural Olympian during the Poetry Parnassus of the London 2012 Summer Games. He is also an active professional member of the Horror Writer Association and the Science Fiction Poetry Association.
Charles Saunders, the Imaro writer.

Current SFF authors like Alyssa Wong, Aliette De Bodard, Ken Liu, NK Jemisin, Sofia Samatar, Zen Cho etc.

Jahnn sounds very good.

Seen this quote from The Ship in a review

Quote
Man is born with a demand for justice, as he understands it. Since his demand remains unfulfilled, a broad understanding of the arbitrary course of events gradually begins to develop in him. He makes the decisions of others his own. He hardens his thoughts to inflexible ideas and consoles his inner powers with a later or a beyond.
