    John Sandford. I love his Prey novels, and there has only been one that I would prefer never to read again.

    For me!? I'd say;

    Ronald Dahl (I loved his stories when I was younger! I still read them now!)

    Alison Croggon (By far, one of the best fantasy novelist and poets during this day and age)

    Bryce Courtenay (Most of his stories are recollections of true events and are incredibly powerful)

    J.K. Rowling (I love her stories. But I can't stand the movies, I fell asleep during the last one)

    J.R.R Tolkien(I tried to read the first page of Lord of the Rings and was lost by the third word. Love the movies though, very nice!)

    Can't miss means you will automatically read anything they put out?
    Zelazny and Saberhagen (fantasy that is) when they were alive.
    I was reading all Feist's books up until King of Foxes. I could not get into it. I am reading Conclave of Shadows II now though.
    Bujold up until the most recent book or two. I perceive them as being a romance/fantasy.

    Non SFF - I read pretty much anything Robert Parker (Spenser) puts out, though for years they have been very much "paint by the numbers". I did give up on the latest Sunny Randall book, after a page or two, recently.

    Joseph Conrad
    Ernest Hemingway
    Slyvia Plath
    T.S. Eliot
    R. Scott Bakker
    Robin Hobb

    There are others but I can't think right now.

    I was in the bookstore yesterday, and somehow I missed that the newest Prey novel had been released! Phantom Prey has been bumped to the "on-deck" position of my book pile, once I finish Storm of Swords again.
