    Authors who never miss for you

    For me Dan Simmons without a doubt.

    I like everything he ever wrote.

    I've read and enjoyed at least five books by these authors --

    George R. R. Martin
    Pat Barker (WWI and British working class novels)
    Owen Parry (Civil War mystery series)
    Don Robertson (Civil War and present day novels)
    Larry Watson (sorta southern gothic)
    Ron Hansen (two great westerns and some gen fic)
    Charles Dickinson (one kick-ass time travel story and some gen fic)
    David L. Martin (with the exception of Facing Rushmore)
    Stephen King
    Joe Lansdale (especially the Hap and Leonard books)
    Margaret Laurence (the Manawaka novels)
    Steven Erikson
    Dan Simmons (but I couldn't finish A Winter Haunting)
    Larry McMurtry (although I thought the Berrybender series was a bit too silly)
    Peter Straub (except for Mr. X -- still haven't gotten through that one)

    My experience of Philip K. Dick and Haruki Murakami has been pretty stainless so far.

    For me its Ray Bradbury.
    The Man is a treasure. And his ability to transcend genres is amazing.
    I think he is not human.

    I think Dan SImmons is the best multi genre author. I wish we would attempt some fantasy.
