    I'm down with The Don on Hiaasen and Leonard. Additionally, I'd add James Lee Burke, T. Jefferson Parker and Michael Connelly, also prolific authors whose work have withstood the test of time, if not getting even better, and who never disappoint!

    Chuck Palahniuk for me.

    His books have always pointed out interesting facets about society that rings true in many ways in my eyes. The dude gets involved with his writing to the point where you can't help but notice how much first hand experience and research goes into his work. I'm currently reading "Rant" which has an awesome narration throughout the book.

    "People don't want their lives fixed. Nobody wants their problems solved. Their dramas. Their distractions. Their stories resolved. Their messes cleaned up. Because what would they have left? Just the big scary unknown."

    Also I would like to throw Paulo Coelho's name out there. I've only read one of his books ("The Alchemist") but plan to read more. I love that story. My sisters swears by most of his other books. Simple reads consisting of nothing complex, but well worth it.

    I need to read more...

    Hemingway, HST, James Joyce, Umberto Eco, and Stephen King. Actually, I'll put King first, because if it wasn't for his books when I was a kid, I never would have read any of the others.

    Stephen King. Gerald's Game got me started down his twisted path.

    I'd also have to add George Orwell.

    Billy Beane is a baseball pioneer. He understood this **** back in the 1980's. Just incredible. What's sad is that Bill James gets the bulk of the credit for all of this sabermetrics stuff flying around today. Granted he did coin the term and bring it to the public's eye, Billy Beane was the mastermind behind the idea of using those numbers to determine the true value of a player.
