    I didn't see a thread for this topic, so forgive me if there is one.

    My favorites are in alphabetical order:

    Peter S. Beagle
    Ray Bradbury
    Orson Scott Card
    Arthur C. Clarke
    Stephen R. Donaldson
    Robin Hobb
    Dan Simmons

    There are many others that I love, but those are my top seven.
