(just started this list, many more to be added!)

| I just was making a page
listing some of the books that I am currently reading, and realized that I
should add a page listing some of my favorite authors along with links and
comments. This is of course a highly idiosyncratic list, and I offer
no apologies for my extreme subjectivity. :)
Richard Dawkins: An imminent English Biologist and sometimes controversial popularizer of biological topics
RICHARD DAWKIN LINKS
Mary Renault: What a treasure this woman is! I especially love her books on ancient Greece. She gave me a love of history that I lacked and entertained me at the same time with her sensitive, evocative writing.
MARY RENAULT LINKS
This extraordinary woman is one of my favorite writers.
Gene Wolf: Some consider this writer one of, if not the best, writer in the English language.
GENE WOLFE LINKS
Tim Powers: I ran across this author back in the early nineties (The Stress of Her Regard) and immediately recognized him as a class unto himself. It's hard to categorize him, but you could broadly put into the category of speculative fiction with concentration in the magical outre. One of my very favorite authors.
