    As it should be. Although I'm still a big fan of American Gods and Graveyard Book.

    Poe, Dante, Milton, Stoker, Anne Rice, Stephen King, Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, Susan Kay's Phantom, Kim Harrison, Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series up until about Obsidian Butterfly, Poppy Z. Brite, Kim Newman's Anno Dracula series, and Dr. Seuss.

    There are probably too many to name, but I do love Barbara Kingsolver, John Berendt, Arturo Perez-Reverte, and Terry Pratchett.
    I'll put a spell on you;
    You'll fall asleep, and I'll put a spell on you.
    And when I wake you, I'll be the first thing you see,
    And you'll realize that you love me.

    I could never name them all, but...
    For modern fiction: Sarah Monette, Sarah Micklem, Margaret Atwood, Neil Gaiman, Ginn Hale
    For mythology: H. R. Ellis Davidson
    For witchcraft: Robin Artisson, Doreen Valiente
    For herb lore: Dale Pendell, Christian Ratsch
    And dozens of others... :D
    "Being Nietzschean requires one to think apart from him, starting from the spot where the "work in progress" that is philosophy was transformed by his passage. He called for unfaithful disciples who, by their betrayal, would prove their loyalty. He wanted people to obey him by following themselves and no one else, not even him. Particularly not him."

    Ummm lets see if I can condense this list.
    Not listed in any order, just the first ones to pop into my head at the topic.

    1) J.K. Rowling- I will ALWAYS love her books.
    2) Rick Riordan- Actually I like the Kane Chronicles better than Percy Jackson
    3) Dean Koontz
    4) Stephen King
    5) Sherrilyn Kenyon-roommate got me hooked...and that hook sinks deeper with every Dark/Were/Dream-Hunter book that I read
    6) Edgar Allen Poe- I have been reading his stuff since I learned HOW to read.... Litterally.
    7) J.R.R. Toilken- Duh, is all i need to say.
    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle- I like Sherlock Holmes...
    9) William Shakespeare-No actually this isn't because of highschool or college
    10) Sandra Brown-I have only read one of them but I'm loving her books


    And that is all I'm listing
