Here's my favourites

Stephen King
Christian Jacq
Matthew Reilly
James Rollins
Kathy Reichs
Shaun Hutson
Karin Slaughter
Valerio M Manfredi
Jane Austen
Lexilogio

Kurt Vonnegut
Frank Herbert
Norman Mailer
Audrey Nifennegger
Terry Pratchett
Josteinn Gaarder

I doubt I could stretch to ten, but some of my favourite authors are:

Charles Dickens
Fyodor Dostoevsky
Jane Austen
J.R.R Tolkein
C.S. Lewis
Cervantes
Lexilogio

I haven't tried Cervantes yet - although he is on my list of authors I plan to get around to.

Dostoyevsky is good though - and I would add Franz Kafka.

Ooh - a classicist. Love Chaucer, Shakespeare and Joseph Conrad. Not keen on Herman Melville, and I have struggled a bit to get into Dante's inferno.

Moby Dick is one of truly great novels and Dante is just sublime
