Top Ten Greatest Authors


The Contenders: Page 15

281 Robert Muchamore

Cherub series! How could anyone forget?!?

282 Clive Cussler

Don't you agree he should be in here?

283 Khaled Hosseini

Wait, WHAT? Didn't nobody read The Kite Runner or A Thousand Splendid Suns or And The Mountains Echoed? Because that can be the only reason that such a great writer is placed so low on this list.. He has to be in top 10 at least

Hosseini at 263!? Unbelievable. Do you people vote for only well known authors? Apparently you haven't read The Kite Runner and his two other novels. by the way The Kite runner movie was a joke compared to the real thing. Hosseini will toy with your emotions like no other, and the way he played with words to create heartbreaking for him now!

284 Chris Bradford

He is the bomb he made to best-selling series the Young Samurai and The Bodyguard - 2storm

285 Thomas Harris

Author of The Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal, and Red Dragon, some of the best and most epic novels ever written. They are chilling yet fascinating at the same time.

286 Walter Dean Myers
287 Gary Paulsen
288 Mikhail Bulgakov

Bulgakov is a legend. An author that has amazingly combined satire, drama and black humor. The Master and Margarita is a beautiful masterpiece and one of a kind. I can't believe he isn't in the top 100, at least, for god's sake.

289 Daniel Handler

The author of a series of unfortunate events. What I admire most about him is his distinct style of writing. You'd be hard pressed to find a style of writing much like his. If his work depresses or confuses you, well I don't blame you, even he is constantly saying it's miserable, but I find if your looking for some thing that keeps you on your toes, try his books.

290 Wally Lamb
291 Frank Sch├Ątzing
292 Robert Lettrick
293 Richmal Crompton
294 Wolfgang Hohlbein
295 Anne Rice

Why hasn't anyone put her in here? Come on people! She is the queen of vampire literature, among other things. Her characters are sexy, badass and awesome in general. Stephanie Meyer ain't got nothing on her amazing Vampire Chronicles, which actually made one the most successful authors of all time. Haven't read her? Do it NOW.

296 David Klass

David Klass is the greatest author ever!
He wrote The caretaker trilogy, You don't know me,...

297 Eoin Colfer

The author of Artemis Fowl. Enough said.

298 Ber Carroll
299 Hamish Brown

He wrote the day the darkness fell its only in kindle store but it's good

300 Cornelia Funke

Best author of all time
