Weekly Geeks


Gosh, I haven't done a Weekly Geeks in a while! I feel as though I've fallen off blogger a little bit lately, and I do apologise for that.

I'm not reading very much either, but I'm hoping to change that over the next two and a half weeks that I have off work.

What were we talking about? Oh! Weekly Geeks! The question, as always, is here: http://www.weeklygeeks.com/ and we're talking about our favourite authors.

I always go a bit blank when asked this question, but overall my favourite authors are Tolkien, Neil Gaiman, Agatha Christie, Stephen King ... and there's a bunch that I'm forgetting; that I know I will remember as soon as I post this.

What I go for _ always _ is story. If someone can tell me a good story, then I'm basically theirs for life. And those four authors can tell a hell of a story.

As always, Weekly Geeks (and gosh, it's fun to play in the sandbox again!) live long and prosper!

Oh, I used to love Agatha Christie as a teenager. Not read much King or Gaiman though...

I mentioned Neil Gaiman in my post too. You can read it here.

I agree with you about an author telling me a good story. I sometimes get in friendly disagreements about whether an author "writes well" and have to assert that great writing or no, if an author can tell such an enveloping story...they are a "good" author.
