Somebody mentioned in the "Bring an author back to life" post how nice it would be to have drinks with his favorite author. So this thread will be:

If you had a dinner party who would you like to invite? Alive or deceased. Your choice how many authors. I would think people would want to keep it fairly small and intimate, but hey, it's your party!

I would go for Mark Twain, Richard Matheson, Stephen King, Robert Heinlein, Neil Gaiman and George Orwell.

Okay, my guests will be: Marge Piercy, Mary Shelley, Joanna Russ, Gloria Steinem, and Octavia Butler. I think that should make for some fascinating conversation.

p.s. MommaCat, can I please be invited to your dinner also? I'd love to listen in!

Not sure if she did - but maybe a "greats from historical fiction" buffet? (I'd really like to see if it's true about Anne Boleyn's sixth finger...)

Okay...I basically live/read in the past anyway so I'd go for:

Fanny Burney, Charles Dickens, H. L. Mencken, Evelyn Waugh, Harold Nicolson, Peggy Guggenheim, and Barbara Pym.
Oscar Wilde would be invited for dessert & coffee so he doesn't hog the limelight. Also the Duchess of Devonshire.

Denise Mina, Ian Rankin, Jo Nesbo and Arnaldur Indridason would be invited another time.

Hmmmmm. First 2 I'd like to put together is Edgar Allan Poe and Sigmund Freud and then throw in Mark Twain. Yeah, I think I'll invite them over for some sort of table game that 4 can play (poker, Trivial Pursuit, scrabble) with lots of drinks and snacks. And of course the first person I'd be ringing the next morning would be Sigmund to see what he thought of my other guests.

William Shakespere, Oscar Wilde, Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway, George Bernard Shaw, James Joyce and Samuel Beckett. It would be an awesome evening!

I like it! An opinion from Freud!

How about Poe, Lovecraft, Peter Straub, Stephen King, Dan Simmons, Robert McCammon and Edith Wharton.
Edith was a tough and smart woman and I'm sure between us we could keep all these men in line! Momma? You can come too!

That's an awesome dinner, Char! I'd love to come.

These all sound like fabulous dinner parties. Can all of us posting get automatically invited also if we promise to be quiet when we're not hosting?

Absolutely! I think the door is open! Does everyone agree to bring a bottle of wine or a dessert?
