    C S Lewis would be my favorite followed by Lewis Carroll. I used to think they were the same guy too. LOL  See ya

    It wavers for me, between Phillip K. Dick (science fiction), John Grisham (legal fiction), the late Mario Puzo (literary crime novelist), and Elmore Leonard (crime novelist). These are my favorites because of the way they deftly handle language. What moves me is the way they say what they say, as much as what they say. You know what I mean?

    J.R.R. Tolkien, without a doubt. Tolkien's ability to create his own world (Middle Earth) - complete with histories, languages, races, etc. - and seamlessly incorporate it into his works is astounding. I would have to give a nod to C.S. Lewis as well though.

    Obviously (?) my favorites would be J.R.R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis. However, my favorite contempory novelist would be Frank Perretti.

    Margaret Atwood - I love her writing style and voice, plus she always sucks me right into the story. Tom Robbins is a close second though!
