Favorite Authors? Answered

I wanted to know who your guys' favorite authors are. My favorite author would have to be Robert Cormier(until further notice). Plus I like what I have read of Dean Koontz and Stephen King, but I think everybody does, and I like Robert Louis Stevenson.

Nice I don't care much for Dahl but I love Snickets book's as well as Rowling (anyone who doesn't probably has not read them or is arguing that kids are going to start shouting sectumsempra at people they disagree with) L'amour, Riordan, the other authors of the 39 clues series, Brandon Mull oh and whoever wrote Rikki Tikki tavi as well as the people that wrote the recipies in the better homes and garden new cookbook.

My all time favorite (of course, he is the only author I know of to have written a book in every category of the dewy decimal system of the library) author is Isaac Asimov, hands down. Second only to him would be Lawrence Maxwell Krauss.

Yes he is, but certainly not with the broad range Mr Asimov has (with books in nearly every category in the duey decimal system of the library.

I would like to add Stephen King, Joe Hill, Margaret Atwood, and Joe R. Lansdale, but subtract Chuck Palahniuk.

Chuck Palahniuk and I have broken up, his last five books or so have been AWFUL.

Oh, I forgot Gaiman - American Gods is brilliant.

(Are brilliant?)

"Is" is correct. American Gods = book. Book is a singular noun. So "is" would work, but not are.

Especially since they weren't! I didn't like it very much. I don't know that I'm prepared to say it wasn't brilliant, but... Sorta ugly. But I'd actually been to "House on a Rock", which is just as surreal in real life as it is in the book, so that was pretty cool...

Of writers that haven't been mentioned much yet, I'll throw out Lois M Bujuold, Steven Brust, John Brunner, Walter J Williams, Roger Zelazny, and Anne McCaffery. (I'm real surprised that RZ hasn't shown up yet.) So Kiteman - did you mean Niven & Pournelle, only when writing together, or do you like them separately as well? I don't think I care much for P on his own... Alas, authors seem to fall into two groups. Those who don't write enough, and those who write too much.
