Stop flaming people outside of B&T. You're starting to piss me off, every time I read one of your posts it's retarded one liner flames. Shut up.screw_ball said:I think "Dull" is the key word here.
Meaning that you're dumb.
Stephen King is the best.
I agree with everyone's opinion of Clancy; he's lost his creativity in my opinion.Woodreaux said:I read a lot of Clancy, don't much anymore... sounds too much like an Armed Forces recruiter. Stephen Hawking's books. Fact is stranger than fiction, and theory is even more out the box.
I used to be a huge fan of Rice when I was in high school, haven't read anything since the Mayfair witches though. I've been to her house in New Orleans, it's a pretty cool tour; she has books stacked to her ceilings all over the place.switch_scribe said:Anne Rice (yes, somewhat cliche, but come on, it's like reading porn)
I started reading the Gunslinger series, but just got bored with them. The Dark Towers were great books though.dustinzgirl said:Dark Tower is a must read for everyone who enjoys sci fi, fantasy, drama and/or westerns. Its really that damn good.
I've read most of his books, the Hobbit got me into him, as is probably the case with most people.switch_scribe said:Tolkien.
Dammit! I knew I was leaving one of them out! <smacks self in forehead>junglizm said:Douglas Adams (Hitchikers guide to the galaxy)

btw - Robert Jordan fans might be interested in knowing that he wrote a couple of books under the pseudonym of "Reagan O'Neal." The Fallon Blood, the Fallon Pride, and the Fallon Legacy. They are essentially historical romances written primarily from the male perspective. Real bodice-rippers; very vulgar. Hell, the Wheel of Time verges on pornographic often enough anyway. Check them out, if you like that sort of thing.
Ah yes. Forgot about Crichton. All his books kick ass.VenomHowell said:To you Tom Clancy fans, take a look at this here, specifically number 4 on the list:
I kid, I kid, I love Tom Clancy's games and wouldprobably love his books too, if only I didn't have a backed up stack of 10 novels I still want to read.
My favoruite authors would have to be:
Douglas Adams (HG2G baby! And Dirk Gently!)
Michael Crichton (The Great Train Robbery, Jurassic Park)
Blaine Lee Pardoe (Battletech: Highlander Gambit, Battletech: Twilight of the Clans I: Exodus Road)
I would also put Michael Stackpole there, but he's a pompous, arrogant jackass. He may be a good writer, who made some of my favourite books, but he gets far more praise than he bloody well deserves, and he thinks he's the greatest thing since sliced bread... In other words, I like his works, I just don't like him.
If I can think of anymore, I'll put em down.
