These are sophisticated fellows , these writers. Their hands are source of magic and sometimes what they write is so beautiful and majestic that could hypnotize you.

I , myself , like Stephen King the most. His books ; IT . The Green Mile , Carrie , The Shining , Mr. Mercedes etc are tremendous.

how about u guys?

Marcus Aurelius is far and away my favorite writer, meditations being my go to book when I'm in a pickle.

Isaac Asimov and Jeffrey Archer.
Can't pick between either, but both are my favorites in their own rights. Both are masters of plot and twists, and I can claim both are major influences in my writing and how I go about it.

The White Padded Room :arrow: The Open Book

This is probably better suited here. :)

I don't think I have one, but the ones I enjoy the most are Asimov, Coelho, Tolkien and S. King.

Tolkien- he created the modern fantasy Genre and wrote one of the (if not THE) most popular fantasy stories.

I have many. John Green, Rainbow Rowell, Sarah Dessen, and Nicholas Sparks are my favorites.

It's so hard to pick just one and stick with it so my answer might be different next week. But I'm leaning for Aldous Huxley, at the moment. Doors of Perception is my Bible and Brave New World is my Revelation.

Mike Mullin or Michael Grant. Maybe Max Brooks.

While not my favorite writer, Aurelius' Meditations is a wonderful book. Very inspiring.

I'm not sure I have a favorite writer... I don't think I read enough books to know. Perhaps one day I will get one though.

Tolkien has got it in my top spot, The Hobbit is my favorite book of all time and the only book I have ever re-read. Although his excessive description and lack of dialogue is the only thing I don't enjoy

Plato. Hands down.

Plutarch, Maimonides, Descartes, and Machiavelli get honorable mention.

Isaac Asimov, Hunter S. Thompson, Raymond Chandler, Dashell Hammet, and Ernest Hemingway

Currently its Linwood Barclay. I read No Time For Goodbye when I was about 12 and I've just gotten back into crime books, he's got such a creative mind I don't understand how he comes up with his storylines and characters. He's definitely one of my favourite authors.
