    Michael Stackpole!

    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.

    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.

    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.
