Who is yours? Before I get into who is my favorite author, I hope that after reading this you will leave a comment about who is your favorite and more importantly why.
There are a number of great authors that I enjoy reading. Many of them any Sci Fi fan will recognize, Clarke, Niven, Silverberg, Pohl, Bradbury, Heinlein, Herbert and others. I really look forward to finding new authors and books as well. One example is Wesley Chu and The Lives of Tao. Chu is an incredibly talented and thought-provoking writer. But I have to say that Issac Asimov is my favorite author. Why? He is the first author that I really got lost in the world he was writing about with his Foundation Trilogy. I just could not put the books down. The characters, the worlds, the science, the descriptions were so vivid for me. I was there. Maybe if had read Tolkien and the Hobbit, or Clarke and The Sentinel, first I would have a different favorite.
Who is yours? and more importantly, please share why they are your favorite.
