I like Richard Laymon, Jack Ketchum, Clive Barker, Michael Slade... basically messed up, hard-core horror.

Read some the authors I listed. Richard Laymon is basically a much better and more graphic version of stephen king.

I love reading anything, including newspapers, catalogues, recipe books, cereal boxes-- in general, anything printed, even apartment and house floorplans. My favourites, though, include existential philosophy, physics, pataphysics, European history, biographies, political analysis, Canadian short stories, classical poetry, and specific authors including Franz Kafka, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Anton Chekhov, Jean Paul Sartre, Samuel Beckett, Al Purdy, P. A. Lopez, Simone de Beauvoir, Sylvia Plath, Ludvig Wittgenstein, James Burke, Irshad Manji, Jane Goodall, Pierre Berton,
Friedrich Nietszche, Laurence Rees, C S. Lewis, Carl Sagan, Barbara Coloroso, June Callwood, Stephen J. Gould, Stephen Hawking, and others too numerous to mention.

Even though I haven't read in awhile:

Frank Herbert
JK Rowling
Isaac Asimov
Philip K. Dick (huge fan)

I usually only read science-fiction and occasionally fantasy and children's fantasy. I'm a sucker for genre.

Let's see, J.K. Rowling, Samuel Clemens, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Dr. Harlan Tarbell, Maharishi Veda Vyasa, Stephen Lawhead (The Paradise War, Song of Albion), O. Henry (I've a 1937 complete edition), Commander Edward Ellsberg (Naval Science and adventure stories), Richard Chase (American Folktales and Songs , and the Jack Tales), John Jacob Holtzapfel (Hand or Simple Turning, Principles and Practice, Ornamental Woodturning), Edgar Allen Poe, Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, Isaac Asimov, Goscinny & Uderzo (the French Asterix and Obelix comics) and Carl Barks (Uncle Scrooge!)

Those are the ones that come to mind nowadays, and mainly which I have on my bookshelf. 8)

Other reading interests are non author-specific, and include Naval Science, historic firearms and military science, machinery, woodworking, Linux, and whatever comes along to pique my aspie mind!
