    One of my favourites is Linwood Barclay, but there are so many more. I mostly read thrillers and mysteries and there are a lot of good authors. Also have been reading some of Phillip Margolin's books, good legal suspense and I like that.

    I have read too many books to have a favourite.
    I suspect regular readers would all have the same quandry.
    I have read Barclay, but aftyer a while he is pretty formulaic.

    I think Michael Moorcock is the one for me! I guess I just love his writing and his way of building the characters. As I am trying to read books in English now I guess that I'll begin by re-reading his books! Best author ever! :buttrock

    I like the john Sanford prey novels. My only gripe being they all have prey in the title and sometimes I forget. which ones I've read.

    J.R.R. Tolkien would be my favorite for fiction.
    I can re-read his work and still discover new bits and pieces.

    Gary Paulsen Hands down for me Brians Saga is the only Series I re-read on an annual basis.

    Next it would be Cassandra Clare.

    I read Clockwork Angel fell in love blew through Clockwork Prince and Princess working on the Bane Chronicles (finding time to read while working 12 hr days 7 days a week is not easy) while im trying to find City of Bones in a specific cover art in hard back. Then ill start that and work my way into The Dark Artifacts Series.
