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 smile


Wow, I didn't know that, interesting. What was he before?

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?

Tongue Favorite authors???

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.

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.
