I don't have a very long list. I'm always adding more, you know. But these are staples at the moment:
Anne McCaffrey (I just like writing her name> wink)
Tolkien
Stephen Donaldson (the covenant series)
Asimov
Lois McMaster Bujold
Mary Stewart (especially, A Walk in Wolf Wood)
Heinlen
and, Octavia Butler
::sheepish grin::
I admit, I also like the Harry Potter series.
Ok, that's it!

I'd have to say Tolkien tops my list, followed closely by Terry Pratchett. Everyone else is pretty much on an equal footing after that.

Hmm, maybe one of my "problems" is too many favourite authors...
