Favorite authors:
Tom Clancy, Piers Anthony, David Eddings,Terry Brooks

I'll read almost anything I can get my hands on, when I've got the time (which lately is not at all:()

At the moment, my library (??) has in it :
A crapload of technical (Linux) stuff
A Larger crapload of Piers Anthony
Misc Tom Clancy stuff
Quite a few other of my "favorite" authors

Last book read: It's been a month or so, so I can't recall. It was good, but not extremely so.

Stephen King. Hated him for ages then suddenly got into him about six months ago in the biggest way.
Richard Laymon for the sickest sexual and violent shit ever.
Joe Donnelly for the best and most beautifully written horror ever.
Allessandro Barricco for Silk and Ocean Sea (Ocean Sea is so damn beautiful I have been reading the first chapter over and over and over for the last five months because I just can't imagine anyting more exquisite).
C.S.Lewis for the Narnia books.
Edgar Allen Poe for just being God.
Bryce Courtenay for writing the best book I've ever read (The Power of One).
Clive Cussler. Damn. Just...damn.
Jean Auel and Diana Gabaldon for their enormous amounts of research and phenomenally real characters.
Dean Koontz for knowing the secret of the universe and sharing little bits in his books.
Alice Walker for writing women with strength and intelligence and courage and wisdom.
Anne McCaffrey for doing all of the above in either a futuristic setting or a parallel dimension.
Christopher Pike for the Last Vampire series. Too cool.
Willard Price for the adventure books I've been addicted to since I was eight.
Katherine Gordon for sensuality, decadence and opulence.
Terry Pratchett for being on my wavelength and a complete nutter.
Oscar Wilde for being such a sumptuously glorious bastard.
Yeats for being heaven in human form and for making words dance with pain across the page.
The heart that I love must have wild places.

Omg.....My fave poem in the whole world is "The Raven" and I am such a book worm, fanatic even...
Poe did a piece called "Black Cat" that I absolutely adore...
I love Anne rice for her discriptive qualities and for her romance...she has a couple other pen names...Anne Rampling, Anne Roqulaire(spelling) and the "Beautys Release series is so morbidly beautiful!
I just finished Violin and it was astounding....as most all her work is.... :)
I also like Lenord Cohen...he is a great Poet and I have been so inspired by his work at times...
I will read anything I can get my hands on....
"Reading is knowledge and knowledge is Power"....I like that little quote...so very true! :)
I'm also into Dean Kootz, Robert Walker, Tami Hoag and James Patterson right now, and I like anything by Max Lucado...I do read some Stephen King, but I'm not really into him, I like some of his shorter stories...but not a great fan... :blink:
I read alot of books about art and history..I'm really a big fan of Botticelli and have been reading alot about him....
Eh, I could go on and on and on and on...I will stop my self now and simply state that I'm a nerd too...If reading makes you one...I am proud to be one! hee hee hee! ;)

Peace :D

i - in my state of having no life - read almost everything.

Harry Potter sucks.
anything anime sucks more.

i'm diseased, i know.

Laurell K. Hamilton rules. her Anita Blake series is excellent. the Merry Gentry series i like less, but is still gold. this chick's characters give off a pulse when you touch the page. i shit you not.

Christopher Golden and Tom DeFalco because they write all my favorite X-Men novels. (yeah, i know i'm sick.)

Patricia McKillip is always an excellent read.

Robin McKinley writes novels i could reread forever and never find dull.

Charles De Lint has it all. fantasy, horror, tragedy, all the good stuff tossed in a blender and mixed with blood and broken glass.

Marion Zimmer Bradley - she is a goddess.

i'm also a fan of Anne McCaffrey and C.S. Lewis.
Lloyd Alexander, Piers Anthony, Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, Mercedes Lackey, Orson Scott Card, Tanith Lee, Rosemary Edgehill, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Starhawk, Andre Norton, Nora Roberts but i like her better as J.D. Robb . . . . . and so many more . . lol.

Books huh? I'll assume that we're counting comcis and stuff too, so here we are:

Neil Gaiman: Everything the man touches turns to gold.

Terry Goodkind: Sword of Truth Series

Tolkien: LOTR/Hobbit/etc. etc.

Rowling: Pottah. Harry Pottah. I'll admit it.

Oscar Wilde: Picture of Dorien Gray

Jhonen Vasquez: JtHM, Squee

Jonathan Nasaw: The World on Blood, All the Girls He Adored

H.P. Lovecraft in general

E. A. Poe

Milton: Paradise Lost

Dante: The Inferno



That's about all that I can think of right now. These are not in any particular order, other than the order that I thought them up. To be honest, I really don't like Anne Rice. She's a brilliant author, and the stories are excellent...but her writing style doesn't sit with me properly...for some reason I just cant seem to get into her writings. Sometimes I wish I could, but I can't.

For science-fiction/fantasy I like Robert Jordan, Terry Goodkind, R. A. Salvatore, Margaret Weis, Tracy Hickman, J. R. R. Tolkien to list a few.

For Philosophy I like John Shelby Spong, Carl Segan, Joseph Campbell, blah blah blah?

Anyway I like reading as long as it holds my interest, if the book gets slow I tend to set it down and leave it. Oh and I have read the Harry Potter books and I enjoyed them, they are just good stories for entertainment, I don't want to get into a Harry Potter debate by anymeans but I just wanted to say that I liked them.
