    Oh, I still love Stephen King. He has given hours upon hours of entertainment over the decades.

    Other: Couldn't really narrow it down but either Tolkien, Ann Rice, or the author I tend to collect the most Raymond E. Feist.

    I said other, I could never pick a sole favorite :D

    Rowling, Zahn, A.C. Crispin, Mark Twain, Beverly Cleary, Karen Cushman are just a few of my favorites.

    I put down other.
    My favorite author is Eric Nylund, who has written three Halo books which I think are excellent. He really nailed down on some specifics in the story.

    I'm going with Orson Scott Card. Ender's Game is my favorite book ever, and I enjoy many of his other works.
