Wow, Sleator was the last person who I expected a BZPer to recognize. Of course, there is a member named Luap, so I should have known better. The others you listed are introduced to many readers over time.

I have heard of both of those authors, although I haven't read books by either of them.


Glad to know people appreciate Sleator. :)

J.R.R. Tolkien is a very good writer, and it is in reading his books I have been inspired to draw masterpieces (which don't turn out as masterful as I would like) or write wonders (though I haven't done it yet).


And Greg Farshtey is also excellent. Many have attempted to imitate his work.


I have read Roald Dahl, but my favorite was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.



Have you read C.S. Lewis? (Just wondering...he's up there with J.R.R. Tolkien.)

Oh my! How could forget C.S. Lewis? I must have been rushing.


And I agree that Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a work of genius. Also, have you read Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, its sequel? That's another great work by Dahl.
