I'm new as well. A good question and prompts me to want to look at my bookshelf tonight. But for now off the top I would have to say Margaret Atwood and Henry David Thoreau.

He He, I'm Old! and I'm new here so what I say dosen't really mater. :mrgreen: My biggest escape when I was young was reading so I read everything I could get my hands on! Now I have to say my favorite writers are (aside from Bob Dylan) Hunter S. Thompson & Shakespeare.
Seriously.

:wink: I stumbled upon a James
Lee Burke mystery by accident
at a garage sale. The book was
Black Cherry Blues and since
then, I've read all of his
Dave Robicheaux novels which
take place in the Louisiana
Bayou country. His writing
is the type that grabs you
and hangs on to the very
end. Highly recommended for
mystery lovers.

I enjoy reading mystery novels such as Agatha Christie, Lawrence Sanders, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The list goes on though.

[size=7]My favorit authour would have to be Edgar Allen Poe. Most people tell me that he is a horribly depressing writer, but for some reason I'm happy when I read his distored visions.[/size]

Easy to fall asleep reading AC - not boring - more like a bedtime story you're reading to yourself

Had to edit this - I don't know where I am thinking anyone would automatically assume AC is Agatha Christie.

He is not necessarily my favorite author, but I greatly appreciated Shade's Children by Garth Nix. Another author that I really like was K.A. Applegate, who wrote the Animorphs series. I didn't like the books quite so much for the plot, nor for the writing ability, but for the slight undertones of religious analysis that I found (probably where none was intended, knowing me!)

Well written Scifi and Fantasy stories. Specifically Ender's Game and the whole Ender's Saga.
