Right now, its 2 writers who team up quite a bit.
Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle.
Kidding, I'd have to go with either George Orwell or Kurt Vonegeut.
Robinson Davies is probably my favourite author, right now.
I'm surprised not to have found C.S.Lewis and J.R.R.Tolkien on the list, though.
My favorite authors are neil gaiman and frank miller.
I read all types of books and don't typically repeat authors. My interests are all over the place and I tend to jump around between genres.
These are the only authors on that list that I have read more than two books by, in order of preference:
Arthur C. Clarke
and alot more
JRR Tolkien (can't put Fellowship down!)
Phillip Pullman (Dark Materials Trilogy is one of the best things I have ever read)
Any SW writer, but Zahn. I'm obviously cultured.
hmm, these are just English speaking authors, and the only one I really like is Douglas Adams, but I can't call him my favourite.
Well, I've only read perhaps 40 proper books in my time, and about half of those are Star Wars novels. Out of the books I have read, Dean Koontz is definately my favorite author.
I CANNOT believe you didn't put Robert Heinlein on there...
one of these days... sigh...
I wanted a longer list to include some of the names mentioned here, but it wouldn't let me have a list that long
well, who's Harlan Ellison? never heard of him...take him off...
NO J.R.R Tolkein?!
OMG!!!!!! how could you NOT include such a legend?!
OMG - i thought i'd come back to have another read through these polls and i realised i spelt the great mans name wrong!
//you may all proceed to slap my with cold wet fish!//
TOLKIEN TOLKIEN TOLKIEN TOLKIEN TOLKIEN !!!!!
TOLKIEN TOLKIEN TOLKIEN!
My favorite author is Marion Zimmer Bradley. The Mists of Avalon is the best and longest book I've ever read.
Terry Pratchett, you heathens!
Jaina, my girlfriend loves that book! 'Course she treats it as though it were non-fiction, but that's another story altogether!
I chose two fathoms deep, I mean Mark Twain.
Ginger Jedi, you are the best!!
Phillip Pullmans Dark Marterials Trilogy is my all time fave!!
Either Tom Clancy or Thomas Harris
