    Douglas Adams. The Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul is my favorite of his. You'll want to read Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency first.

    Neil Stephenson. Snow Crash.
    Neil Stephenson has been on my TBR list for ages.... Where is a good place to start with his books?

    Brandon Sanderson for me. He wrote Mistborn, Stormlight Archives and finished Wheel of Time.
    Love Sanderson!!!! Not sure if any other Author in publishing today takes care of their readers the way Sanderson does....

    Tolkein is GOAT, but RA Salvator is a close second, his Drizzt books are top tier.
    Been wanting to enter that world for a very long time, its soooooooo big. a bit overhwelming tbh....any advice as to where to start?

    Thanks

    I doubt there is an author who takes care of the readers like BS does. Mayyyybe SK comes close.

    However I like how Patrick Rufus and Scott Lynch communicates with their fans about their struggles in life and that we shouldn't expect new books soon as they are dedicating their time to heal. It is more than some authors could say ... *cough* GRRM *cough*

    Have to agree with Casper on Douglas Adams and Sweeny_Todd on Terry Pratchett, but my favourite read of all time would have to be Joseph Heller's "Catch 22". The man had a firm grasp on reality and a wonderfully agile way with words to demonstrate his points of view.

    Absolutely, especially Rothfuss, not only the struggles, i think he does a lot of charitable work too. Its a shame about Scott Lynch too, i love that series. I know hes been doing much better over the last couple years, hopefully he will still want to finish the series, if not, thats OK too, we got 3 amazing books and thats perfectly fine.

    GRM ???? ill never understand. Unfortunate situation all around.
