To be honest, Dr Seuss. I remember the books from being a kid, and then enjoyed them again with the kids.

Lovecraft, because Yog Sothoth is real.

Steinbeck....after reading Travels With Charlie, I could not help but fall in love with his easily readable, yet deep stories. He is the author who's books taught me symbolism...the turtle in The Grapes of Wrath....and is just fun to read!

Alfred Hitchcock. I read almost all if not all of The Three Investigators series of books. That is when I was a kid.

I would have thought Edgar Rice Burroughs.

I did read a lot of Tarzan comic books growing up and watched all the old movies. I also watch the Tarzan cartoon growing up..
There are a lot of good authors out there so it is really hard to pick just one. I really enjoyed The Three Investigators though.

A toss up for me between Kurt Vonnegut and Stephen King.

Vonnegut has never ceased to entertain me. As well as make me think. His satire on the human race is second to none.

And I used to think King was overrated. But I've read The Stand about 20 times and love it more and more.

Great thread!

Probably Stephen King, From a buick 8 is probably my favorite.

And then there is Raymond E. Feist, and I swear G.G.R Martin took inspiration from his books, and Feist's sagas are very much underrated.

LOVE Howard, but the favorite is Michael Moorcock.

Strange how Watchers is one of the best books ever and at the same time several of the worst films ever.

The book that I enjoyed the most was The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse by Robert Rankin. Surreal as hell and one of the most unexpected storylines ever.

I don't love every book from any writer but do have a few favorites,
Tom Clancy has some great ones.
Terry Pratchett, funny stuff.
John ringo for a guilty pleasure.
H.g. Well's for classic sci fi.

And for #s and giggles,
Michael Crichton, don't care for his books but the movies based off of them are pretty good.

I going to go for Thomas Carlyle. Dry humour, awe-inspiring prose style. Start with Sartor Resartus, on "the philosophy of clothes".
