    I have many, and it's really hard to narrow it down to just one. So I won't!

    Fyodor Dostoevsky: The Idiot is perhaps my favorite novel of all time (Or perhaps tied for favoritest with Anna Karenina and East of Eden)

    Terry Pratchett: One of my favorite people ever. What a genius. No one else can make me laugh and think deeply at the same time like he can.

    Either Phillip K. Dick or William Gibson.

    Toss up depending on the day, really.


    listen to the silence, let it ring on

    Rowling slays Twitter and I adore her.

    But for favourite author, Marion Zimmer Bradley. She was one of my first inductions into fantasy and her writing is just amazing. Firebrand is one of my favourite stories/retelling of Greek mythology ever.

    Honorable mentions : Rick Riordan (PJO/HOO universe is amazing), Mercedes Lackey (Valdemar books are awesome and she was a student of Bradley), and Patrick Rothfuss.

    I really like Stephen R Donaldson for some reason. I also tend to enjoy most Stephen King books (two Stephens!).

    In terms of non-genre fiction I really enjoyed Fifth Business by Robertson Davies (haven't read it in a long time though). Unfortunately I spend so much time re-reading the Wheel of Time that I probably miss out on a lot of good stuff.

    If anyone's ever looking for a good short YA read Boo by Neil Smith was really enjoyable.
