The Contenders: Page 16

301 Pavel Corut
302 Mircea Eliade
303 Mircea Cărtărescu
304 Alexandru Vlahuță
305 Robert Muchamore

Cherub series! How could anyone forget?!?

306 Clive Cussler

Don't you agree he should be in here?

307 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!

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

309 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.

310 Eugene Ionesco Eugene Ionesco Eugène Ionesco, born Eugen Ionescu (26 November 1909 – 28 March 1994) was a Romanian-French playwright who wrote mostly in French, and one of the foremost figures of the French Avant-garde theatre. Beyond ridiculing the most banal situations, Ionesco's plays depict the solitude and insignificance more.
311 Jerome David Salinger
312 Walter Dean Myers
313 Gary Paulsen
314 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.

315 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.

316 Wally Lamb
317 Frank Schätzing
318 Robert Lettrick
319 Richmal Crompton
320 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.
