    Piers Anthony. For fiction, but it'd be extremely hard to find one I like better in NON-FICTION.

    Cormac McCarthy. "The Road" is great, but "Blood Meridian" is a masterpiece.

    Robert Jordan - WoT epically kicks @$$.

    Roger Zelazny - Chronicles of Amber!

    Faulkner - Dude's got steez.

    Also, I will somewhat shamefully admit that I liked Wuthering Heights a lot.

    Edit: Also, I really liked Louis Menand's Metaphysical Club, partly because I have an amateur fascination with the court system, and Asimov... and William Gibson

    I totally dig these two guys. The latter, the better. Ulysses is just amazing.

    Oh, man! You didn't let me down. I love all of them. Very strong writers, very simple, laconic style. Did you know Carver and Bukowski became close friends? (I found this out very recently).

    Very cool set of writers. I love Henry Miller! Tropic of Cancer my book number one! The first page is my favourite piece of literature!
    I have to read something by Atwood. And Stephen King is the most unappreciated writer - he creates amazing characters.

    Awesome!
    Have you read the ENTIRE 'God's comedy'? That would be pretty impressive.

    I'd add: Thomas Pynchon, Paul Auster, Saul Below and Philip Roth.
    Oh, literature..

    I would have to say Robert Jordan is by the far the best I've read.

    George R.R. Martin is pretty good, too.
