What authors do people miss?
My choices are Reginald Hill, Ed McBain & Donald E Westlake
Sidney Sheldon Umberto Eco
Oh yes good call
Mine is a historical romance author, Kathleen E. Woodiwiss.
Sidney Sheldon and Stieg Larsson
Tom Sharpe. A very funny and talented writer.
I’m sure a lot of people will also miss Terry Pratchett
I was just going to say Pratchett. The excitement of waiting for his new books..
I also miss Elmore Leonard
Oh, yes! And Ruth Rendell
Ed McBain 🙁 so much
Richard Laymon. Had his entire collection.
This is a bit bittersweet. We are sad to have lost these really talented people but feel good because their books were in our lives.
Graham Joyce is another author that I miss.
Robert Ludlum and Allan Folsom who wrote 5 great books, including “The Day After To-morrow”, not to be confused with the film of the same name. I would highly recommend any of his books.
Definitely James Herbert.
Love his books. Read them all
Me too 🙂
I met him on his last ever UK event
The Secret of Crickley Hall still sends shivers down my spine….swish thwack! lol. Thats awesome was he friendly?
I got a signed copy of Ash. He was a lovely person. He stayed over at the shop until 2230, to make sure that everybody got everything signed.
@Jason thats something to be treasured the memory and the book 🙂
I love James Herbert. I read my first James Herbert at 14 yrs old, it was Moon. That was it, I was hooked!
Dick Francis. They are just not the same since his son carried on writing them.
Obviously, AGATHA CHRISTIEEEEEEE.
Oh yes completely, what an author.
aka Michael Kerr. Robert B. Parker.
Am I right Danielle Steel passed away in the middle of a book and the rest was written by another author? I seem to remember one book and subsequent books being “off”?
Mrs Steele is alive and well
I am not sure I would read much of many of her books today, but I used to love Catherine Cookson.
Oops to the typo 😀
I used to love her books too!
so did I ,but now I don’t want to read them anymore
