    Neil Gaiman is the first that comes to mind, but I also really adore Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Victor Hugo has a lot of really lovely, classics which I intend to someday read through properly. And if I were simply to look at authors I admire, Oscar Wilde is right up there, because the man had some serious cojones and ever more seriously funny brains. Edgar Allan Poe is good when I want something brooding and dramatic (maybe even melodramatic), though I’ve never quite been able to get terrified by his works like most people suggest I should have been. Alan Moore is a king in comics, and Joss Whedon writes hilarious dialogue and very unique supernatural and sci-fi plots.

    Of course, heading into script-writing is probably a tad bit stretching it, but why not. I could probably list about a dozen others, for various reasons. But, as I said, Neil Gaiman is probably my current favourite. I’m reading my way through his works of non-children’s books. (Though the title “The Day I Swapped My Dad For Two Goldfish” made me laugh out loud when I first read it in his bibliography, I think there’s a decent chance it is maybe, perhaps, one I can skip.)

    Adams is one of the best to have ever written. Clarke is just as amazing. Asimov was a genius, of course. But let me add two somewhat newer names:

    I am fascinated with Brandon Sanderson, who has this super-complex multi-series where you do not need to read more than one book to enjoy it, but the more series you read, the more can you speculate and think, as he makes very subtle and complex parallels and connections. Another great thing is his writing speed – he publishes at least one “big and important” novel and two or three “smaller, less central” novels every year, which means that even if you run out of material, you will have some more in a few months tops. His audiobook readers are very good, as well. I can tell you more if you are interested.

    John Scalzi – I have only read one of his series. Old man’s war is quite good, and some may find it’s sequels enjoyable as well. I read these just as audiobooks, so I can recommend them. The first is almost definitely the best in most respects.

    Shirley Jackson tops my list at the moment. Also Italo Calvino, Douglas Adams, Tanya Huff, Octavia Butler. Gaiman for short fiction, Libba Bray for YA. WB Yeats and Mark Twain for classics. John Bellairs for nostalgic comfort reading.

    (both poets, novel writers, non fiction writers, and people that produced inspiring quotes)

    Jotie ‘t Hooft (Belgian poet, died of suicide)
    Emily Bronte (my keyboard lacks the correct accents. Wuthering Heights is a masterpiece, and she wrote amazing poetry too)
    Rosa Luxemburg
    Albert Camus
    Paulo Coelho
    Boudewijn Büch (late Dutch writer, famous for his incredible style of writing travelogues)
    Damien Echols (he’s innocent. No proof of any guilt whatsoever)
    Jevgeni Zamjatin
    George Orwell
    Noam Chomsky
    Eva Vergaelen (her book about women in Islam was so refreshing to read in a time where most people have such wrong ideas about Islam? A few chapters convinced me of her admirable motivation and poetic writing style)

    When I was younger, I was always reading Amelia Atwater-Rhodes. I loved her books when I was a teen. Something about her writing kept my interest.
