Best Authors

I’ve created two distinctions of my ‘Best Authors’. First is a listing of Promising Authors, reflecting those authors who I have read one of two books that I have quite enjoyed. This is quite a large list, as I find myself very rarely disenchanted by an author. The titles listed below the authors are those books that I have read by them. The second is a listing of Complete the List Authors, these being the novelists behind two or more books that I have thoroughly, thoroughly enjoyed – perhaps even inspired me. This is a mostly small list – reflecting, rather than my high standards, my interest in trying new authors out. There are few authors who I have devoted several novels to, and several more that I hope to do so in the near future. The full list of published works is provided for each CTL Author, with those which are crossed out being the works that I have thus far read.
