also in no particular order...

King ( yes Steven. )
John Irving (the World According to Garp is one of the greatest books ever written. I cried when it was over not because of the ending but because it was over.)
JD Salinger (catcher helped me through a very tough time in my life.)
Herman Hesse (siddhartha and Knulp are both life altering books.)
Piers Anthony (when younger)
Terry Goodkind (fantasy)
Dalton Trumbo (must read Johnny got his Gun!!!!)
Chuck Palahniuk (fight club)

I have always been a voracious reader since i was able to. A great book is the closest thing to tripping. It transfers your Self to another world and alters your conscious. I long ago made the decision that I didn't like reality all that much so reading and great movies and drugs help me escape it if only for a little while.

yeah i read that book, the main bad guy's name was "tak" i think.. don't remember much else, but i know it was entertaining. i remember that rave scene too... he ripped some guy's arm off while time was frozen

i checked amazon (i couldn't remember either), it's called dragon tears... i think i remember also reading a fantasy book called the dragon's eye though, it was actually about dragons.. but maybe it was dragon tooth? or something. well whatever.. there are a lot of good books out there.

'Eyes of the Dragon' was a Stephen King book who is one of my favorite authors along with Koontz. And
Mark Twain (SC, whatever), Tolkein, Salinger, Jonathan Swift, Donald J. Sobol (Encyclopedia Brown books I gobbled up when I was young), and many more if I thought about it for a bit.
