Favorite author (spinoff from Current reads)

Just thought I'd see who you like. I'm a die hard sci-fi-er.

Roger Zelazny tops my list, his Amber series is my all time favorite series. On the whole I prefer his early work (This Immortal, Dilvish the Damned), rather than his late collaborations....when he paired with another author I think he put out some garabage (especially his posthumous work).

Roger is closely Followed by:

Isaac Aasimov
Robert Silverburg
Larry Niven
Orson Scott Card
and Arthur C. Clarke

I am always looking for good Sci-Fi authors to read....so if you have some that are noteworthy...please share :P

Terry Pratchett

Lol, there are some other authors of course, but he's certainly my all time favourite.

Thomas Hardy all the way!

Oh, and of course Chesterton.

(sorry they're not not sci-fi... how about Bradbury?)

Of what my friend calls "The Three Bs: Brin, Baxter, Baer", I'm most fond of the last two. I tried Brin once, and found the experience so aversive that I've not ever tried to read him again.

Hmm... I guess I'd have to say Alexandre Dumas and Jane Austen.

Very hard question to answer...I'd have to say Wilbur Smith or Colleen McCullough.
