Not seen a thread dedicated to our favorite authors. Go ahead, tell who you enjoy reading the most.

I really enjoy Stephen King a lot. He's very dark, but humorous. He always makes his characters believable.

I just finished The Drawing Of The Three and I'm taking a break from the Dark Tower series to read IT, which is amazing!

I love Stephen King, but I've never gotten around to reading 'It'. How is it?

I'd have to say my favorite author is Tom Clancy. But Stephen King is a close second.

Terry Pratchett is probably my ultimate favourite. Can't beat a book that has a great story, is funny in its own right and choked full of satire.

Albert Camus because The Outsider = best. book. ever.
#11
Kurt Vonnegut at the moment and i've just started getting into Stephen Fry aswell and a bit of Ben Elton.

+1. Animal Farm is close to as good as 1984 imo. Orwell is just amazing.

I thought there was already a thread on this, but oh well. Mine's Hunter S. Thompson. Anyone who is able to make politics interesting and relevant to me gets my respect. I also love his humor.

I really enjoy random authors like Nic Sheiff (sp) Anthony Kiedis, Niel Strauss, Irvine Welsh, William Burroughs, Chuck Pahalnuck (sp), umm probably alot more, but yeah

Stephen King is such an overrated author it makes me cry inside. Sure, I enjoy him for some light reading (and I'd say It and The Stand are high in my favourite books) but my God, he's not that complex and is nothing special.

My favourite author is Jerome K. Jerome, perhaps the only 19th Century writer I can stand. Wilde is good, but he only wrote the one novel, so I don't count him in authors.

The power to feel with others give.

EDIT: ^ I completely agree with your comment on Stephen King (except for The Stand/It being in my list of favourite novels).

I'm like a third of the way through "wizard and glass" I was quite enjoying the dark tower series until the sickening stupidity of the Roland/Susan love story.

Christopher Pike. If anyone here knows of him. The Last Vampire series is awesome. And two characters have the last name "Gibson" and "Fender", which leads me to believe he's a guitarist...

I've read two books of that series (Wolves of the Calla and The Gunslinger, in that order) and saw the other day that The Works was selling Song of Susanna, in a nice hardback edition, for £1.99, so I got it. Though this love interest you mention disturbs me
