* Creator/DianeDuane is a ''goddess''. Go read ''[[Franchise/StarTrek The Wounded Sky]]'' and dare to disagree.

*** I agree absolutely. I think that Young Wizards is her BEST work ever for writes for kids and adults both. Every single character is seriously real. Nobody can ever, ever say that DD doesn't know how to write any kind of character. She gives each of them individual personalities (some authors think all teenagers act the same) and makes them realer. Than. Real. They could be someone you just walk by on the street or have a casual conversation with while waiting in line at the grocery store. I can't tell you how well she writes. The best thing to do is go to the library and pick up the first few books in the series.

* RykESpoor's [[http://jiltanith.thefifthimperium.com/Collections/GrandCentralArenaChapters/GrandCentralArena_01.php Grand Central Arena]] (careful, that's only half the book, you'll be hooked). [[http://stuffyoulike.blip.tv/file/5059069/ Tropey and awesome.]] It's full of random allusions, magic, science and SufficientlyAdvancedAliens, and speeds along like an express train. Never have I read so many cliffhangers in one book. *fans self* Plus the protagonist, and several of the supporting characters, are completely BadAss.

**Are examples not allowed on this page? Because they should be. Things like the end of the Nirnaeth Arnoediad make me cry.
***But the Men of Dor-lómin held the rearguard, as Húrin and Huor desired; for they did not wish in their hearts to leave the Northlands, and if they could not win back to their homes, there they would stand to the end. Thus was the treachery of Uldor redressed; and of all the deeds of war that the fathers of Men wrought in behalf of the Eldar, the last stand of the Men of Dor-lómin is most renowned.

* Jillian Tamaki, who wrote Skim, a small graphic novel about a teenage girl, is my idol. She deserves to be as well known as any of the above writers (not that they aren't also completely awesome).
* JackKirby is known as the king of comics for a reason. His stories are simple, but have so many levels at the same time. His characters are fun and fascinating. The dialogue ranges from the crude, loud-mouthed Brooklyn accent of the Thing to the cultured, maniacal ramblings of Darksied or the Red Skull. And, most of all, he just gets it. He understands every single level of comics, and it shows in everything he does. No matter what the story is, if Kirby writes it, you can find something to enjoy.

* GeorgeRRMartin writes the most real characters I've ever come across. He may also write an epic plot in a remarkably well build fantastical world, but it's the characters, who feel like real people that really gets to me. It makes me feel more immersed in the book than any other.

* Dan Abnett. ''GauntsGhosts''is what he's best known for, but really, if it can be told by words on paper, he's probably written for it!

* The english translation (no idea about the original Japanese version) of ''BatenKaitos Origins'' is amazingly brilliant. Not only is the dialogue very well written, the story's self-aware nature comes as a pleasant surprise. Then again, it was translated by Nintendo, who have a bit more money to spend on this sort of thing than NamcoBandai did for the first game, but still at times it's hard to believe that both games come from the same series.

* ''[[Literature/AsianSaga Shogun]]'' and ''[[Literature/AsianSaga Noble House]]'' by JamesClavell. I'm sure some of his other novels are just as rich in world building and characters, but these are the two I've read, and they are pleasures to read because of that.

* For all the bashing he had endured for ''TheDaVinciCode'', you gotta admit that DanBrown really knows how to write thrillers. [[{{Emoticon}} ;)]]
** If anything, the shitstorm that ''TheDaVinciCode'' stirred up speaks volumes about Brown's immense writing skill. Plenty of people have written thrillers about [[ConspiracyKitchenSink implausible conspiracy theories]] before, but how many of them have managed to inspire [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Da_Vinci_Code_(film)#Protests protests]], [[http://www.amazon.com/The-Da-Vinci-Hoax-Exposing/dp/1586170341/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1346420978&sr=1-1-fkmr1&keywords=The+Da+Vince+hoax book-length rebuttals]], [[http://www.amazon.com/Beyond-Vinci-Code-History-Channel/dp/B0007XG02W History Channel documentaries]], and even ''[[http://www.sermoncentral.com/articleb.asp?article=p-davincisermons sermons]]'' written in response to them? ps--this troper loves how his plots twist and move at an incredible pace, keeping those pages turning!

** Season 4 [[BaseBreaker may not be looked upon in the friendliest light by all fans]], but the writing stays undeniably crisp, with characters lives relying heavily on the escapades of the other family members, usually without even knowing so. Some episodes later reveal that a main character was ''just barely'' off-screen the entire time in a previous episode, though still affecting the story. It just goes to show that these writers know what they're doing.
