I don't generally like sf about angels, but...

This discussion blames Jim Butcher for the prevalence of angels in sf, and now I want a timeline/bibliography.

There was the singular cherubim in L'Engle's A Wind in the Door, but that probably isn't the annoying sort of angel, or at least I liked it.

I'm also fond of MacAvoy's Damiano trilogy.

The earliest "angels" I can think of are in Sharon Shinn, and they were handwaved science fiction.

There's one who's author and title I don't remember, but included a scene of a woman putting makeup on a male angel.

However, all of this is earlier than urban fantasy/paranormal romance.

I thought angels were still rare compared to vampires, fey, and werewolves. Have I been missing something?
