JK Rowling, CS Lewis & Roald Dahl - my childhood.
Rick Riordan - kudos to the Percy Jackson series and the Kane chronicles. I have yet to read the Sons of Neptune.
Suzanne Collins - lately ko lang nabasa ang Hunger Games Trilogy but finished it all in 3 days. I got hooked.
Ian McEwan - Atonement really made me cry.

These authors have astounding imaginations.  The worlds and characters they have created in their books are so nuanced and rich and absolutely absorbing.

Ursula K. Le Guin  - The Earthsea Cycle (5 boks)

Dan Simmons  - The Hyperion Cantos (4 books)

Frank Herbert  - Dune Chronicles (6 books)

Philip Pullman  - His Dark Materials (3 books)

Garth Nix  - Abhorsen Trilogy

 

I have at least 3 books from the following authors as well:

Ray Bradbury

Dean Koontz

Arthur C. Clarke

Takashi Matsuoka

Richard Paul Evans
