Some Favorite Things # 2: Authors

The second in an occasional series of lists of favourite things. This time round it's the one everybody always asks; favourite authors. I've said elsewhere on this site that my own work is likely more influenced by music than it is by other witers, though I do read a tremendous amount too. Here are some of the authors that have stuck with me over the years.

J G Ballard

Philip K Dick

T S Eliot

Thomas Ligotti

Sylvia Plath
