Evolution of a writer (1): Favourite Authors

I thought it was about time to let on some of my tastes and influences.

I will, over the next few weeks, fill in the gaps on my tastes and recommendations in reading, music and film/television. At first just in list form, like below, but I shall eventually place links here for some of the authors, publishers, musicians and artists that I review over the coming weeks..

Not that I think you’ll be interested in personal stuff, my tastes in the arts may show you some of my influences, both overt and the ones I am unaware of.
Just the basics today, I’ll go more into detail in future posts, including youtube links to songs I feel are worthy.

Again some (most) of you may just think ‘Great, more shit…just gimme the reviews and the free stories.’ For you guys and gals, I apologise. Call it rambling, call it pointless…fuck…dress it in drag and call it Theodora for all I fucking care.

As you can see, I don’t give a toss if you read it or not.
Here goes with the first list.

Authors (Influences in Bold):
(No particular order, just as they spring to mind)

Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Richard Laymon, William S. Burroughs, Charles Bukowski, Gina Ranalli, James Roy Daley, Michael Slade, Brett McBean, Steve Gerlach, Tim Curran, R. Frederick-Hamilton, Matthew Revert, Matthew Reilly, Jack Ketchum, Simon Clark, Joe Lansdale, Robert R. McCammon, Graham Masterton, Greg Lamberson, James A. Moore, Michael McBride, William Ollie, Brian Keene, Jeff Strand, Andersen Prunty, Brian Knight, R. A. Salvatore, Ed Greenwood, Kylie Chan, Garrett Cook, Jason Wuchenich, Jess Gulbranson, Gregory David Roberts, Wrath James White, Michael Marshall (Smith), Kim Paffenwroth, Terry Pratchett, the Harry Potter series, Stephen King’s Dark Tower series, The Celestine Prophecy, Kevin Shamel, Robin Hobb, Andy MacNab, Chris Ryan, J.R.R.Tolkien, Robert G. Barrett, Andrew J. McKiernan, Shane Jiraiya Cummings, Raymond Feist, the Reverend Steven Rage, and Chantal Boudreau (unpublished but damn good).

Basic list that I will update and add to as I think of extras.
I recommend any or all if these authors to you all. If you like my stuff, you’ll most likely enjoy some or all of these writers. Check them out if you’ve a mind to, and use your own judgement.
Some are well known, some are barely known and some are unknown. All are damn good.
