Phillip K. Dick
I'm surprised that I'm the only one whose voted for Neil Gaiman so far. He has a great imagination and his writing style is amazing. I love Terry Pratchet and JKR, too.
George R.R. Martin.
I am suprised that Phillip K. Dick was not inclued in the Poll.
His stories have been adapted into the following movies:
I've voted "other": Marion Zimmer Bradley, Rowling and Frank Herbert.
Tolkien because he is the only one whose books I have actually read.
J.R.R. Tolkein, it puzzles me why any one else could thinks its not him.
Terry Goodkind, I like Sword of Truth series. It was excellent
I only know who JRR tolkien and Other is.
J.R.R. Tolkien created something immortal!
Of course J.R.R. Tolkien
No, JKR? I'm outta here.
I picked Tolkien but I am surprised you left Phillip Pullman, Rowling and C.S. Lewis off the list.
J.R.R. Tolkien, got me into the genre.
J.R.R. Tolkien gets my vote!
(Raymond E Feist is another good one)
Tolkien. He created whole worlds, species, languages...everything...
Other. JK Rowling. Tolkein isn't even modern. He's dead, plus he wrote all of his books way before any of us were born.
(Sorry Zahn, and Card)
What about C.S. Lewis?
"RA Salvatore is modern too. where is he?"
Judging by the AotC novelization, he's a more likely candidate for worst modern fantasy author. It appalls me that that guy gets paid to write books.
I didn't read the AotC novelization, but his Forgotten Realms books are pretty good. (And this is coming from someone who hated RAS after Vector Prime. My opinion was changed.)
Tolkien, followed closely by C.S. Lewis.
