Edit: Fine, I'll contribute even less to the life of this thread.


I love him...Anansi's Boys was a bit lacking
besides him I love Irving Welsh and have a soft spot for Nick Hornsby

Brendan Behen, Murakami,Richard Bach, Gerald Durrell, I like whimsy on the foundations of reality.

Sci-fi wise? K.J Parker, Pratchett, Phillip K. Dick, Vonnegut.

Too many to list either way.

I'm surprised there are so many Stephen King fans here. I'll admit he's had some good works, but it's been a while since he's had anything seriously worth reading. He's become a brand name rather and a quality writer these days.

G.B. Shaw for his wit and intelligence hands down for me.

So many people already expressed their love for Neil Gaiman... I have to echo that as well. He's brilliant.
Also amazing: Philip Pullman, Ayn Rand (though I hate her as much as I love her), and let's throw Nabokov on there too to round out the bunch.
And though not a conventional author, the guy who makes xkcd is my hero.
