matt reilly writes some good action novels. my sister is really into the vampire novels, but, at my insistence, read three of his books, titled "ice station", " temple" and "area 7". she was very impressed and cant wait for his next book. if you like vampire novels, read "dhampir". it is really good.
I'll check into that.. thanks!
Alan Robson - Non Fiction Paranormal Author
C.S Lewis - Chronicles of Narnia
I like Louise Rennison Books - not at all intellectual but still very funny in my perspective. - "Angus, Thongs and full-frontal snogging", "It's ok - I'm wearing really big knickers", and "Knocked out by my Nunga-Nungas".
My favourite author is Christopher Golden.

I was pretty impressed by the dune series also...so ..for now...frank herbert is my author.
I like Harry potter books
harry potter is great
R.A. Salvatore best author ever. Go read the Drizzt saga. The Icewind Dale Trilogy is the best. If you have read The LOTR books this are kind of like them but way better. Forgoten relms is great

1. Jules Verne
2. FYdor DOstoevsky
3. Alexandre Dumas
4. Victor Hugo
i thinik my favorite right now is Alexandre Dumas (Monte Cristo and Three Musketeers kick ass)
Has anyone her ever heard of Elizaeth Kerner? she has very few boooks out, but i think her works pretty good.
no i have not heard of her. what kind of books she have? what genre?
I think she may be fantasy too/not sure.....
I used to always look for works by dean r. koontz~watchers and clive barker~ cabal(aka night breed) I guess I was more of a horror fan than I have thought..but now I pick up lots of totally different authors works
I also like J.K. Rowling, she's a great writer. The movies suck though
I liked the first one... didnt care to much for the second
my fave author is matt reilly.
Margaret Weiss and Tracy Hickman (team)
C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien
their books are THE best
Diana Wynne Jones and Fannie Flagg..... there's more I just can't remember them.
Michael Crichton and Tom Clancy are also good authors.
i like michael crichtons Five Patients.
I agree, but I've only read The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe by Lewis
Did you know Tolkien very much disliked Lewis' writing.
Lewis > Tolkien
No, I actually didn't know that Tolkien disliked Lewis' writing, but I do know that Tolkien converted Lewis to Christianity.
I have a list but I'll have to go with Tolkien and George R.R. Martin as my two favorites since I can put my LONG list up, lol
All the DragonLance authors:
Tonya C. Cook
Paul B. Thompson
Richard A. Knaak
John Maddox Roberts
Linda P. Baker
and more that I can't remember/don't know of yet
omg i forgot about Robin Cook. i think his books are great (some)
What has he written? The name is familiar......
Wow, I didn't know that, interesting. What was he before?
way too many to list. there are so many good authors, i'd have to look througfh millions of books to determine my favorites.
My favorite is definitly H.P. Lovecraft. Some of my others are Stephen King, Mercedes Lackey, Bruce Covell, and Augest Derleth.
really? well they must have been pals 'cause screwtape by lewis was dedicated to tolkien
I use to look for anne rice alot too
Stephen King if my number one fave, but I also like Robin Cook, John Grisham, John Saul, and Anne Rice. Has anyone read any Laurell K. Hamilton?
C.S. Lewis, in no particular order.
i used to be a fan of the Baby-sitters Club, by Ann M. Martin. i read The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton and Charlotte's Web by E.B. White, and they were both great.
i have 3 books by Lemony Snickett, and i read 2 books by Roald Dahl.
when i was younger i liked the Bernstein Bears and Dr. Seuss. not anymore, though.
I for one love to read, and I was just curious who some of your favorite authors were
1. Stephen King - The master of horror. I have read many of his books and I have loved them all. My favorite King book would definately have to be The Talisman. I also highly recommend, The Black House, Needful Things, Dreamcatcher, Bag of Bones, IT, The Stand, Gerald's Game, The Dark Half, Green Mile, Misery, Dead Zone, Rose Madder, and Salem's Lot.
2. Isaac Asimov and his compilations, I love the ones made after the Hugo awards , there are great stories made by him
3. Several authors that are unknown to people that speaks English, M. Delly = 2 french brothers, Rafael Perez y Perez, a great spanish author of historic novels and Concha Linares Becerra, great romantic novels, all of them of the 30's and 40's of the 20th century
4. The once and future king-TH White--Love this book really becuase i love king Arthurs tales.
5. Of course Tolkein -- have read the trilogy 23-25 times since I was twelve.
Love David Eddings -- but only The Belgariad -- the rest of the books messed with the personalities of the characters, to my distress.
I adore Patricia McKillip's The Riddle Master trilogy -- it has flaws (it being the author's first major work) but the magic and the mystery and the haunting love just recreate my soul when I turn to it.
I only read books becuase i Commute to work every day and it gets very boaring without a book to read.
hmm..right now - stephen king n anne rice
J R R tolkien! despite his passing.......
but he wrote de all too famous LOTR books!
man me read dose books too many times!......
let us bookworms hv fun man we ain't hurtin ya!!
I'm a fan of Tolkein, and Richard Bachman's 'The Running Man'. Richard Bachman is Stephen King, of course. If you have not read the Running Man, you will find it to be very different in many ways that the movie. It would have been a tragedy, yet better, if they stayed true to the book, which is actually a short story, maybe 210 pages or so. I highly suggest someone goes and reads this cuz I'm dying to discuss the ending with someone. It is so bomb, the way it ends in the book.
though Id move this to the book forum but since I cant I just have to dish out spankings
i never can find this book th
i hv that book just bought it yesterday im DYING to read it!!!!
ive read soo many of his books!!!!!!!!
I think it is called 'The Bachman Chronicles' It is four early Stephen King novels in one book. Damn, it's gotta be on Amazon or something. I borrowed it from this girl I knew in seventh grade. I don't actually own it, but I'd like to find it tooo. With three O's.
I was in seventh grade at the time too. Just so I don't sound like a perv. Well, at least more of a perv than I am
i can't seem to drag myself outta this forum long enough to read the book tho
You can't be serious. How coincidental would that be?
i know!!!and not many ppl i know love SK too - let alone know tt richard bachman is SK too
and to think i actually bought it yesterday!!
now...if only i can drag my butt off this forum n go to read it
guys what is "girl who loved tom gordon"..bloom you wrote about this in the stephen king thread I made..I never heard of it..is it good?
wow this has been moved...thanks to finti(I think)looks like i dont have to dish out spankings lol..now to merge
it is GOOD!!!!abt this 9 yr old girl who gets lost in the woods...v.touching *tear*
I read somewhere that The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon is going to be made into a movie. Has anyone read the new Dark Tower series called The Wolves of Calla?
Terry Pratchett - a must for comedy and fantasy lovers
Robert Jordan - His on-going wheel of time is quite inventive fantasy writing.
Have you read the latest Discworld Corran?
Yes, I have then all, some on hardback, the latest I read was monstrous Regiment, is that the one you mean?
that's all i can think about for this moment
Crichton By Far. He Is A Genious! well, he researches a lot, And Writes in simple terms. Plus Most Crichtoin Books Are Science Fiction, The best. Also J.K. Rowling wrote five good books.
Robert Jordan and Terry Goodkind. Both their series I find were very well written.
I hope my bf never reads this as he rags me about it enough already - I've read A LOT of Jackie Collins books. I'm still browsing shelves for anything by William Sutcliffe though, I've read his only 3 books and they were GOOD!
If you guys like Grisham, check out my John Grisham thread. It's a poll as well.
J.K. Rowling is a great writer, especially since Harry Potter was her first work. And the movies were great.
J. D. Salinger
Chuck Palahnuik (sp?)
Chris Rock (Yes he has a book. Very Funny.)
Does anybody read David Baldacci? I've heard some good things about him and I started reading "The Simple Truth" today.
Best horror authors have got to be Dean Koontz
and Richard Laymon
big gay kirk
JRR TOlkien has to be my favourite, simply because he wrote "Leaf by Niggle," by far the best of any of his works... I also like Terry Pratchett (met him twice!!) and Greg Bear. George Orwell wrote som e good stuff, and John Christopher, of course, especially The Prince in Waiting Trilogy... peter Beagle's Last Unicorn has to be my favourite book, simply because all the character's have exactly the same problem, but deal with it in such different ways...
Wow theres a book I read a long time ago, in galaxy far far away....
Indeed the book Running Man is far far superior to the film, as books generally are. My brother has a copy of it, so I think I'll borrow it off him and read it again.
My fav author however is Anne Macaffery, I love all the Dragons of Pern books she wrote!
My favorite author is Rober Jordan. The wheel of Time is great.
Philip K. Dick
big gay kirk
Oh, did I mention Tanith Lee??
Diane Mott Davidson
Rita Mae Brown
Edgar Allan Poe
Bret Easton Ellis
Lord Shadow Z
Marilyn Kaye (she writes the Replica Series)
JK Rowling (i think we all know her)
Chris Manby - She's good for a bit of ol' escapism.
and Tolkien of course.
x x x x
clancy, ludlum, coonts, lynds, lynn, bond, and plenty of others that i cant think of right now
Thomas Harris ( only written 4 books in 20 years but Silence of The Lambs and Hannibal are master-pieces - quite superb)
( he invented Hannibal Lector after all - You've got to be pretty genius to come up with a charecter like that - who was also voted Holywoods biggest villan too)
I'm also a big fan of Douglas Adams and Hitchikers guide to the Galaxy
Can't wait for the films
RA Salvatore, Peires Anthony, and mebbe noone else
dunno who else....maybe bulgakov, kafka but ive read only a few books by them
1. Frank Herbert
2. Dean Koontz
3. Douglas Preston
4. Lincoln Child
5. Stephen King

Mickey Zucker Reichert

Still, some I am the richer for having encountered are Pratchett, Le Carre, Tolkien, Mieville, Dickens, Hellar, Wells... ahhh, to many, far to many to chose from...
all authors are all good
when I pick up a book I get so interested in it
some good authors are, J.k Rowling of course for her HP books, Tolkien,
Louis Sachar, C.S. Lewis, Jenny Nimmo, Caroline B. Cooney, and so much more.
F Scott Fitzgerald
Shakespeare (overrated, but still good)
and Jim Morrisons poetry.
Arthur C. Clarke
Lynne Ewing is really as well as J.K. Rowling
Hum... Sharon Creech, JK Rowling, Daniel Handler, Douglas Adams, Louis Sachar. Those are pretty much the only author names I have memorized. Usually if I only read one book by an author I couldn't tell you who wrote it.
Stephen King is a fantastic author/writer
its so hard to pick....
