The Contenders: Page 16

301 Cornelia Funke

Best author of all time

302 James Herbert

The one and only grand master of horror and the UK's top writer of horror fiction!

303 Siri Pettersen
304 George Eliot
305 James Howe

I love his books because they are mysteries

He did Bunnicula which later became a animated pilot episode in 1982 when it is previously known as "Bunnicula the Vampire Rabbit". - monsterhigh200

306 Miguel de Cervantes Miguel de Cervantes Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra (29 September 1547 (assumed) – 22 April 1616), was a Spanish writer who is widely regarded as the greatest writer in the Spanish language and one of the world's pre-eminent novelists.

He's the greatest author I've ever seen. (With a good/great translation)

307 Oliver Wendell Holmes
308 Geoffrey Beevers
309 Larry McMurtry

Every book he's written is so good, Lonesome Dove is my top #1 book, and I don't like westerns

310 Paul-Jacques Bonzon

He wrote the most heart-breaking novel about siblings who got separated for a long time.
His novel "Les Orphelins de Simitra" was adapted to anime entitled " Porphy's Long Journey " and translated to English named " Orphans of Simitra "
It's not famous because the original is in French but its English translation is very well crafted.

311 Lauren Tarshis
312 Peter James
313 Chevy Stevens
314 Hans Koppel
315 Carole Blake
316 Minette Walters
317 Martina Cole
318 Karen Traviss
319 Eric Nylund
320 Joan Didion

Not only are her novels and essays insightful, but beautifully crafted.
