Top 10 Authors You Would Like to Spend a Day With
Not just a brilliant novelist, but an original thinker. Screwtape Letters was great, and there is really nothing else like it. I’d love to know what made this guy tick.
Good friends in real life with CS Lewis, and Smeagol. OMG. What an amazing character. One just can’t say enough about this guy. I hope he liked coffee. It would break my heart if he only drank tea.
The Xanth novels were a big part of my childhood fascination with fantasy worlds, and Anthony gets much of the credit for my love of the YA fantasy genre.
Cuz you never know when you’re going to need a towel and any author who has the chutzpah to start out a book with the destruction of the earth would be quite interesting.
Princess Bride was the best book I’ve ever read. Hands down. And Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid was great. Goldman would be fascinating to hang with.
The Amber novels broke so many molds. Original plots, fascinating characters, and the ability to give the reader a sense that anything is possible. Wow. Sadly, I haven’t read anything other than Amber books from Zelazny. Maybe I should.
Great novelist. Cujo. Salem’s Lot. The Stand. Wow.
Sanderson is a master of originality in the fantasy genre, with amazing characters and above all, fascinating magic systems. A true inspiration.
Orson Scott Card
Not only is Ender’s Game a classic for the big plot twist, but I enjoyed Card’s Alvin Maker series as well. Fresh, different, and with a great protagonist.
Who wouldn’t want to hang with the first published author on the planet? Leviticus was a bit dull for me, and if it stood on its own, I’d surely DNF. But what a life this man led! Although he apparently wasn’t a big talker, I’m sure he’d have some entertaining things to say about leadership after wandering around in the desert for so long.
