    As far as modern authors go, my taste changes from day to day.  The best novel I've read lately is White Tiger by an author with a very difficult name - sorry.  I've never seen anything else he has written but I'm hopeful that I'll find something soon.  It's going to have to say "by the author or White Tiger" on the cover or I'll miss it.

    My favorite of all time is Herman Melville.  I particularly like the canibals and island adventures in Typee & Omoo.  I have to say that as far as literary genius goes, these aren't his best efforts, but they are a rollicking good time.

    For classics I like Jane Austen. For newer fiction, it's Jodi Picoult http://hubpages.com/hub/Books-that-made-me

    Ernest Hemingway, for sure. Although if J.D. Salinger had published more, he might have been it just for his sheer candor.

    Dean Koontz. To me, he is so creative in mind. I love the way he has me believing one way only to discover I was way off track. I also like his books because they taste of the bizarre.

    I must have time though when I read them, for once I start, I cannot stop. He keeps you in suspense until the very end. My next adventure is his soon to be in bookstores, Frankenstein: Lost Souls.

    Stephen King is my favorite, hands down.  I can always count on him to give me food for thought and a fascinating story.   "It" is the best book I have ever read.  Besides just telling a great story and exploring idea of the innate power of the imagination, goodness and the innocence of children, King juggles 7 main characters over a 29 year time span while switching back seamlessly between them and never confusing the reader.  It is a novel of literary proportions.  Anyone who demeans King as solely a “horror-writer” should be ashamed.
