    I'm surprised that two of my favorite authors were not mentioned:

    Nelson DeMille
    Ken Follett

    I also some of the other authors mentioned like:

    Robin Hobb
    Daniel Silva
    JK Rowling

    Of course, every author mentioned above will have one book that is less than stellar, but I will always buy thier books without even reading the synopsis.

    I've mostly read bits and pieces of a wide variety of authors, but of those whom I've read plenty of, the only two author I haven't read anything from that I haven't disliked overall are Philip K. Dick and Isaac Asimov.

    Jorge Luis Borges. I think I've read all his fiction.

    Umberto Eco would be a close second.

    Apart from those two, I prefer to read authors I haven't read before.

    I have enjoyed every individual word Stephenson had ever wrote until REAMDE. That was just... wtf, Neal.

    Yes, Eco! But I also haven't read all his work yet! It's close - but not yet.

    Others:

    Robertson Davies. Love ALL his stuff. And can say so fro the authoritative position of having actually read it all.
    Michael Chabon (Though I did not love Gentlemen of the Road)
    Salman Rushdie - (though I didn't like Haroun and the Sea of Stories.)
    Alexandre Dumas (Two Dianas was BORING but not him, in all likelihood.)
    Mervyn Peake (cheating, I know.)
    Philip Pullman
    Frances Hardinge - so far!

    See above about Neal Stephenson - I'm seriusly bitter about REAMDE. Betrayed.
