For me it would be P.G. Woodhouse and O. Henry. I can't get enough of them.

I too would love more Chee & Leaphorn adventures! With real native american myths, great descriptive locations and interesting blending of the past and present day, I've re-read everything several times and get something new each time.

James A. Crumley

James A. Crumley: "When I finally caught up with Abraham Trahearne, he was drinking beer with an alcoholic bulldog named Fireball Roberts in a ramshackle joint just outside of Sonoma, California, drinking the heart right out of a fine spring afternoon."
The Last Good Kiss  (1978)

Reminds me of what Hemingway said in a piece about Conrad, (this from Tom Stoppard's "Reflections on Ernest Hemingway") When Joseph Conrad died, Ernest Hemingway, by way of an obituary notice, wrote a little piece in the TRANSATLANTIC REVIEW, in October 1924, and what he said was that if it could be shown that by grinding T. S. Eliot down to a fine powder, and by sprinkling the powder upon Conrad's grave, then Conrad would immediately jump out of his grave and commence to write, then he, Hemingway, would leave for London immediately with a sausage grinder in his luggage.

Mark Twain, His stories were so vivid that I expected to run into Tom, Becky or Huckleberry on a recent visit to Hannibal Missouri.

I wouldn't have to look back very far: I've yet to find a replacement for Michael Crichton (at his prime) or Douglas Adams. Wish they were still around to entertain us all.

Hmm. Tough question.

Does Moses count as an author, or just a transcriptionist? Then there's always Solomon, or one of the Apostles.

Just to mess with people's minds. :)

Vince Flynn. I loved every one of his books. At the young age of 47 he lost his fight with cancer.
