writers

Adams, Douglas
One of my favorite authors. I adore the whole Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series, and I liked the Dirk Gently books. And he's done some other decent stuff, including writing for TV.

Anderson, Poul
I've read most of his Time Patrol stories, which I enjoyed, but I need to read them again someday. There was also The Corridors of Time, which I don't really recall anything about. I don't think I've read any of his other work, but I probably should. Asimov, Isaac
One of my favorite authors. I love the
Foundation series, the Robot Novels, and a bunch of other stuff (which I need to reread)... and there's still plenty of stuff I haven't read yet, which I should get to someday. Baum, L. Frank
I haven't actually read any of his work, but of course I've seen things that were based on it, including the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz, and a comic book series, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Anyway, I definitely want to read the actual books, someday. Bradbury, Ray
I read Fahrenheit 451, but I don't clearly remember it. I might have read at least a bit of The Martian Chronicles. I'm not sure if I've read any of his other work, but I definitely want to. Carroll, Lewis (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson)
Of course I'm a fan of Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, and the countless adaptations thereof. Dick, Philip K.
Um... I don't think I've actually read any of his stuff, but I really should. I've at least seen some movies based on his work, such as
The Adjustment Bureau; Blade Runner; A Scanner Darkly; Total Recall (1990); and Total Recall (2012). Dickens, Charles
I've read
A Christmas Carol and A Tale of Two Cities. I should read some other things. Dostoevsky, Fyodor
There's
The Brothers Karamazov, and I hope to read more of his work someday. Dr. Seuss (Theodore Seuss Geisel)

I love the
Nightrunner series, of which I've read two or three books. I need to read more of her stuff. Gaiman, Neil
I don't think I've read any of his stuff, but he's written plenty of books as well as graphic novels that I really want to read someday. And I've seen some movies based on his writing, including Coraline and Stardust, and movies he wrote or co-wrote, including Beowulf and MirrorMask. Goose, Mother Heinlein, Robert A.
I loved
Starship Troopers, and Stranger in a Strange Land, and of course he's written other things I should get to someday. King, Stephen
I haven't really read anything by King, because horror just isn't a literary genre I'm big into. But I have seen various things based on his work, including movies (
Carrie, The Dead Zone, Graveyard Shift, The Lawnmower Man, Misery, Pet Sematary, The Shining, Silver Bullet, Sleepwalkers, Stand By Me), TV movies (Desperation, Quicksilver Highway, Sometimes They Come Back), miniseries (It, The Langoliers, The Shining), and TV series (The Dead Zone, Golden Years, Nightmares & Dreamscapes, and Under the Dome). And there are plenty of other things I'd probably like to see someday. L'Engle, Madeleine
I liked
The Time Quartet, and I should definitely read more of her work. Lewis, C.S.
Of course there were The Chronicles of Narnia, and
The Space Trilogy, and I'm sure I'll read more of his stuff sometime. Milne, A.A.
I don't think I've actually read his books, but at least I'm familiar with Winnie the Pooh from the Disney movie. Montgomery, L.M.
Anne of Green Gables was good, and someday I hope to read the rest of that series. Murakami, Haruki
I liked
The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, and I should definitely read more of his stuff someday. Pratchett, Terry
I loved Moving Pictures, and I need to read more of his work. I've also seen a couple of miniseries based on his books,
The Colour of Magic and Hogfather. Pullman, Philip
I quite liked the
His Dark Materials trilogy. I should read more of his work, maybe. Oh, I've seen a TV adaptation of his book The Ruby in the Smoke. Shakespeare, William
I must have read some of his stuff, and I'm sure I'd like to read more. Certainly I've seen any number of movies based on his work, such as
As You Like It, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Romeo & Juliet, Romeo+Juliet, and probably others. And there are numerous other movies based on his work that I haven't seen yet, but would like to. And there are various fictional movies about the writer himself, such as Anonymous and Shakespeare in Love. Tartt, Donna*
I quite liked The Secret History, so I should probably read more of her work, sometime. Tolkien, J.R.R.
I liked the Lord of the Rings books, and the
movies based on them. I really should read more of his stuff. Twain, Mark (aka Samuel Clemens)
I've read
Mark Twain's Best, and I'm sure long ago I must have read at least a bit of "Tom Sawyer" and maybe some other things that I don't remember well (if at all). I definitely need to read more of his stuff. Verne, Jules
I read Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea when I was a kid, but I don't remember it clearly. I should read it again, as well as reading some of his other work. But of course I've seen movies and things based on his works. Wells, H.G.
I don't think I've actually read any of his books, but I've seen things that are based on or in some way inspired by them. Someday I definitely should read his work.

I liked The Pit Dragon Trilogy, and I loved
The Devil's Arithmetic. Zahn, Timothy
I loved The Thrawn Trilogy. I'm pretty sure I read the first book in the Cobra series, but I don't remember anything about it at all.
