Favorite Authors?  Post [1] »

Maybe I just want to see if anyone shares the same passion as I do for mostly horror writers

My top : Richard Laymon
Others of note: Ramsey Campbell, John Farris, Bentley Little, and others
Faves from the past:
Edgar Allan Poe, HP Lovecraft
If anyyone wants to start threads on these authors please do I joined a Laymon Kills board , but it died (Althoug Laymon is way more graphic than Stephen King he may not be your cup of tea)

I read other genres but Horror is my preference

Hi! I'm not 'in' to a lot of horror, but I do love Edgar Allan Poe. I must admit, I haven't read any of HP Lovecraft's work yet, but I'd love to. So little time!

Favourite authors other than that...hmmm. I do like the following writers (but not in the following order, I'm typing the list as I think, which is bit slow lately...LOL!):

G.K. Chesterton
Plato /Socrates
Tolstoy...I'm just getting into his work. Loved "War and Peace".
Christopher Marlowe
Oscar Wilde
St. Thomas Moore

(Yep, I like reading the 'heavy' stuff!)

I'd have to say my top 5 are:
1. Gaston Leroux (I really need to read something else he wrote besides POTO.
2. Laurie Halse Anderson. (I've read almost all of her young adult books, the most famous is Speak.)
3. Edgar Allen Poe.
4. J. K. Rowling
5. Shakespeare

Thanks to the wonderful Tiannaangel for my sig!

I like detective fiction , most of all Agatha Christie, especially her Hercule Poirot books , and Arthur Conan Doyle.

And yes, I have read a non-Phantom book by Gaston Leroux.
One of the best novels in French detective fiction :)
Funfact. The guy who solves the crime is called Joseph Rouletabille but his real name is Joseph Joséphin...and guess what? it's practically the birth name of the actor who plays the Persian in the Lon Chaney version ( or let's say the French version of his name) . LOL.
