Book Blogger Hop-July 9-12






The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy for Books.
This week's question is: Tell us about some of your favorite authors and why they are your favorites.  (Remember, this is just some of my favorite authors!)

Answer:  Charles de Lint because he writes magical stories with beautiful words.  They have transported me to places that I only thought existed in my dreams and it seems he writes from an enchanted place in his soul.  His characters are like friends that I know somehow.  My favorite is Memory and Dream.

Douglas Clegg - He gives me that creepy feeling that I look for when reading a scary story.  His writing haunts me long after I put his work down.  I loved You Come When I Call You.

Stephen King - Mostly his earlier works, which are very eerie.  He wrote one of the only books that really scared me, Pet Sematary.

Robert McCammon - He has written some amazing stories, from Horror to Historical Fiction.  I get engrossed in all his work.  I think my favorite would have to be Swan Song.

Patricia McKillip - Her fantasy writing is some of the most ethereal I have ever read.  My favorite book of hers is Solstice Wood.
