His stories touch the soul:
Dagon, At Mountains of Madness, Call of the ctuhlhu, shawdow over innsmouth... How can he not be at least in the top three.
Read his books. They are all amazing. All his books carry powerful messages and the meaning of life.
Tolstoy and Dostevesky are the best authors, why is neither at the top spot. War and peace, Anna Karenia, Tolstoy should be in the top ten, if not one
Tolkien, Rowling, King as 1, 2, and 3? We are all going to hell. Sure, I read and thoroughly enjoyed them as a kid (well, Tolkien and King anyway). But Tolstoy, Dostevesky, Conrad, and so many others say SO much more in a single sentence than many of these guys write/wrote in entire books.

Just pure satirical genius and very enthralling Tolkien and Rowling can't compare to this man's genius, no one recognises good literarture anymore. By the way where is Shakespeare and Christopher Marlow? I know they were both mainly playwrites but show them some respect.
He was a fantastic writer : his texts that were both funny and full of an unsuspected philosophical depth! Not to mention his brillant storytelling, his very subtile sense of irony, the music of his perfectly crafted sentences... :-)
best ever! never even heard of most of the rest of these and as you can see by my name I love to read!
Modern Day literature genius. He always manages to capture a reader.
One of the most famous of comics.
please vote for him.
Come on! Don't be so dumb... He doesn't desreve 85 at all with his children of the lamp!
Pilkey should be number 1! He makes the Captain Underpants and Ricky Ricotta books!
Nicholas Sparks is one of the best-known writers in America and overseas for good reason: He has written stories that reveal yearning for our most prized possesion:love.
His stories are very touchy and mesmerising!. He should have been the top most writer!
Wrote timeless classics like the Grapes of Wrath, East of Eden, and Of Mice and Men. A truly visionary writer!
Strindberg is perhaps the a'writer that uses the most different words.
He has a very special talent to describe situations and things.
An expressive genius. The godfather of surrealism. An existentialist tour de force. Pretty much influenced every great author of modern times. He's easily one of the top 5 greatest writers who ever lived.
Pendragon is one of the best series I have read. With comedy, Drama, and creative plots, this sci-fi series is amazing.
Author of Pendragon and Morpheus Road
Also creator of the show "Are you afraid of the dark? "
Vote for him too over on the list Greatest English Language Poets - he is THE BEST and defined modernism in English
Extremely underrated, H. G. Wells should be second
HE IS BEHIND THE RIFT WAR BOOKS SHOULD BE IN TOP 3
Author of the best selling "Shadow Children Series"
I love him because of his musical history and his book "Does the noise in my head bother you". I like the book because of the feelings that he uses.
I love him because he is a great rockstar and he has a big heart that he can share with the world. He is a spontanious writer and like that other guy said about his childhood that it was great and he can inspire other young children.
I think that he should write more books about himself and his history as a musician and as a writer. I think that is book was awesome and that everyone in the world should read it. And as me and my friends say he is better the razzle dazzle.More comments about Steven Tyler
