My favourite authors

I started to write a list of my favourite authors once, and maybe I could continue it? This is just some of the writers I read, but they're those I like most. All of them highly recommended.

Author Books I've read My comments
J.R.R. Tolkien The Hobbit
The Lord of the Rings
The Silmarillion
and more
The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings may be easiest to start with. (at least it was for me.)
Douglas Adams The Hitch-hiker trilogy
Dirk Gently
The (five part) hitch-hiker trilogy is a classic. The Dirk Gently books are also a great read.
Terry Pratchett

The Discworld books
The Nome Trilogy
The Dark Side of the Sun
Johnny and the Dead
Only You Can Save Mankind
The Carpet People
...and more

The greatest in humorous fiction. Whatever you buy (read) you can't go wrong!
Mercedes Lackey Various I've started to read her now, some series, some not. All good.
