I would like to know who your favorite Authors are, and why!

I read all types of books.  Fiction, Sci-Fi, Horror, mystery, romance.

Some favorites of mine are:

Michael Connelly: Gritty Detective novels

Laurell Hamilton: Hard to pin down a certain type, just an awesome writer -Fantasy Plus

Bertrice Small: Queen of the Historical Romance who is now dabbling a bit in alternate worlds and some contemporary books which are very good.

Jonathon and Faye Kellerman: Married, writing 2 different series, both awesome

Angela Knight: Queen of the erotic fantasy novels

Has anyone read the Eragon series by Christopher Paolini?  I saw previews for the new Eragon movie.  Makes me want to read the books!

I've read all of Grisham's novels, most Chrichton, a couple James Patterson & a lot of Clancy (I'm finally getting around to starting the Jack Ryan series from the beginning)... not to mention Tolkien, Dean Koontz & Stephen King when I was younger...

BTW, welcome to the site! :(

Hi,

I like Chrichton as well.  If you like him, you would like Douglas Preston and Lincoln Childs  http://www.prestonchild.com  Riptide was one of the best stories I ever read.  Very suspensful to the very end.  They also wrote Relic, which I heard was made into a movie.  I have not seen the movie, but the book was excellent. http://www.prestonchild.com

Happy Thanksgiving!

Chalk me up as an Isaac Asimov fan; I enjoy both his fiction and non-fiction. There are many, many other authors that I enjoy reading but I've probably read at least 200 books by Asimov.

I enjoy inspirational and Christian faith based books. There are many like:
"Threshing Floor" by Prophetess Juanita Bynum;
"Even as your Soul Prospers" by Bishop Thomas Weeks; and
"10 Spiritual Principles of Successful  Women" by Victoria Lowe.
This is just to name a few. I have always loved to read and Teach my children the same. I sometimes don't feel like reading but I make sure that I read something to them especially when their asking for me to read. Ilove to hear my 6 year old son reading, it is so rewarding.

Diana Gabaldon. Hard to pin down the genre.  Time travel, adventure, romance, war.  Awesome.  I read "A breath of Snow and Ashes" over the Christmas break.  http://en.wikipedia..../Diana_Gabaldon

I have learned so much about Scottish history and also, the beginning of the Americas.  This Series is so amazing, but be prepared, each book is HUGE!

By the way Cooper, I have read Eragon and it was a great book! The sequel to it was not quite as good but it is still worth a read!

Pursuant to this post and the excellent linked essay, I have found my appetite whetted for some more fine pieces of journalism, reportage, history, criticism, review, everything and anything. I have trawled the online archives of The Atlantic and The New Yorker because I love to have something fresh and interesting to print out and read on my lunch break.
Basically I'm after singular examples of quality online writing (no fiction, thanks, I have more than enough of that), not necessarily for the beauty of the prose or even for the content of the story - I just want one of those (preferably big) articles you can't stop reading, and at the end you want to show it to everybody you know because it's just so amazing, and you wish you had read it sooner.
