Well, since Bobert's "Favorite Visual Artists" thread is on its way to 100 posts, howzabout another non-musical favorites thread? Who are your favorite authors? Serious fiction, non-fiction, popular fiction, science fiction...it doesn't matter. No limit on the number. But, let's limit it to prose and save the poets for a thread all for themselves.

Here's my list:

Kurt Vonnegut
Tom Robbins
Carl Hiaasen
Stephen King    (Shhhh! Don't tell anyone I said that!)

Yeh, I'm kind of a lowbrow. Got enough "real literature" as an English Major in college to last for a long time.

Well, now I know this may surprise the heck out of alot of Catboxers but I'z severely dexlexic so books don't do a lot fir me so I'm respondin' as an illiterate. With that said, accoring to a couple a documents out in a foot locker in my studio my old boney Wes Goinny butt got a couple of college degrees so I guess I musta read somthin'...

My favorite current author is GUEST even if GUEST has really pissed me off (excuse my French...) acouple of times. GUEST is a good writer and doesn't dangle any participles...

Okay, Tom Robbins. In "Even the Cowgirls Get the Blues" he talks about the rednecks on Southside Richmond, Va. and having lived there I know exactly what he was seeing. Unrelated he also writes: "If a hen and a halk can lay an egg and a half in and hour and half, then how long will it take a monkey with a wooden leg to kick the seeds outta of a dill pickle?"

But my favorite author is tough. Comes down to a coin toss between Matthew, Mark, Luke or John... but I'm going with Matthew...

Well, thank gods I'm not the first one to mention Neil Gaiman... "Smoke And Mirrors" is some of the BEST short speculative fiction ever written... and "American Gods" would make a fantastic movie...

Looks like I am the first to mention William Gibson, the father of cyberpunk... We fans of his are still waiting (Especially given the sucess of movies like The Matrix) for a really good movie adaptation of his book "Neuromancer"... but given the dreck that 2 of his stories have already been made into, ("Johnny Mnemonic", and "New Rose Hotel"... great stories... lousy movies...) we're not holding our breath...

If Neal Stephenson knew how to end a book to save his life, William Gibson'd be off the top of my list though.... the first chapter of "Snow Crash" might be the coolest first chapter ever...

For High Fantasy and Historical Fiction, I pick Guy Gavriel Kay as my all time fav... I'd much rather read the back cover of "The Fionavar Tapestry" then ever have to read anything between the covers of "Lord Of The Rings" ever again (Oh how I wish that Tom Bombadil hadda been in "The Hobbit", instead of being glossed over in that over crafted pos...) George RR Martin though, is running a VERY close 2nd right now, simpley because I've only read the fist in his "Game Of Thrones" series... man oh man can that guy write!

Hard Science Fiction... well, I'm kinda partial to dudes like Arthur C Clarke, Marshal T Savage, and Frank Herbert...

When I wanna read a good scary book, I take Stephen Kings advice, and read Clive Barker

It's so hard to narrow it down. If I were gonna pick just one, it would probably be John Crowley (Little, Big) by a whisker. May be the best book I ever read. Scott Turow. Charles Dickens, for the wonderful language. Thomas Hardy, for his exposition; the incomparable John Varley, the amazing Tim Powers (may actually be first), Richard Powers (no relation, far as I know), John LeCarre, Barbara Tuchman, Sebastian Junger; Malcolm Macdonald, a British author who writes historical fiction. Connie Willis (To Say Nothing Of the Dog, Passage), William S. Gibson, Joanna Russ, Ursula K. LeGuin. There's a wonderful cyberpunk book called Vacuum Flowers by a guy named Michael Swanwick; it's great. Edward Gorey, for the pictures. Wallace Tripp, likewise; if you have small kids, you really oughtta find a copy of Granfa Grigg Had a Pig or A Great Big Ugly Man Came Up and Tied His Horse to Me. Heck, find copies even if you don't have kids. (What can you say about a guy who draws a mouse taking off a pair of boots and saying "My feet hurt. Gad, how I hate anthropomorphism!) Theodor Seuss Geisel, for his wonderful earlier work like McElligot's Pool, To Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street, and If I Ran the Circus; you can have most of the later stuff. Rita Mae Brown, John Brunner. Roger Zelazny for his early work; don't care for the Nine Princes in Amber series. Heinlein for the early work as well. Larry McMurtry. I have an indescribable book by one of the Theroux, Alexander I think, called The Shinocephalic Waif; it's one of my personal treasures. Dee Brown. Martin Cruz Smith, for Gorky Park and Polar Star. These are some of the top tier. There are many, many more. Did I mention Robert D. Kaplan (Balkan Ghosts, The Ends of the Earth, Eastward to Tartary)? Oh my goodness, almost forgot Robert Louis Stevenson! regards, Bman
