Who's your favorite writer? Dean Koontz or Stephen King? I like Koontz. I have over 40 of his books. For some reason I can never get into anything by King. If you don't read either who is your favorite author and why?
Stephen King has written allot of great books but also a few which aren't quite so great. The shining and desperation are both brilliant though!
George RR Martin is the author of my favourite series "A song of ice and fire" which i highly recommend reading if your into fantasy at all.
James Herbet has written lots of good horror novels and the Arthur series by Beneard Cornwell is amazing! Michael Crichton has written lots of great thriller books which i've loved..
If you want to give Koontz another try I suggest you try the Odd Thomas series. There are 4 so far and a Graphic novel that's pretty good too. Odd Thomas has a lot of suspense and humor. It's a great read.
