Heinlein is good. I like Starship Troopers, but the movie they made of it was absolutely horrendous.

if you're refering to the Jesus Freak books, they didn't actually write them. i'm not 100% certain on that (so don't shoot me) but i'm willing to bet that their name is on there and the organization, The Voice of the Martyrs, actually had each entry written.

Oh man, you guys suck...makin' me think o' this. Off the top of my head (in no particular order) - J.R.R. Tokien, C.S. Lewis, George. R.R. Martin, Stephen Lawhead, R.A. Salvatore, Frank Peretti, Neil Gaiman, Robin Hobb (or, Megan Lindholm), R. Scott Bakker, Frank Herbert, and probably lots more...

p.s. I accidentally made this post as a guest, first. So, if that shows up (it's not there now), 'twas me.

R.A. Salvatore

Whoa, I totally forgot about him. I really dug the Dark Elf Trilogy (although I still have to find Sojourn, and I can't find it anywhere...)

I don't have a favorite author, so to say, but I enjoy many of the classic books from earlier on in the 1900's and even some in the 1800's. Ya know, the books they force you to read in school and stuff because they're "great peices of literature". Books like "The Jungle" by Uption Sinclair, and "1984" by George Orwell. Ya know, books like that. Two of my more favored authors are Raymond Feist and Edgar Allen Poe, but those two seem to be the only two who I can say have more than one book/story that I really enjoy by them.
I'm a big history fan, so most any book relating to a specific time in History, (i.e. Ancient Rome era or the time of the Black Plague), or books that are based around different and ancient cultures thrill me. Especially if they're fictional and have pictures. >_<

The only author I've really read extensively of is C.S. Lewis. He is probably my favorite author.

I also enjoy Ernest Hemingway (not everything he's written, but the stuff I do like I like a whole lot) and...Miriam Toews? She is the author of A Complicated Kindness, not sure if I got her name right.
