Wow – horror, mysteries and one Spanish dude. Interesting list. But naming someone a favorite seems like such a commitment. There are lots of authors I like, just like there are lots of books and movies I’ve enjoyed, but I always find it impossible to pick one favorite.
I wonder if anyone else has had as much trouble as I have with the way LibraryThing handles authors? For example, Rex Stout is listed twice – same spelling, no difference I can see – but one has a big question mark and one has a picture and a full listing. You can’t search for the correct listing for Arturo Perez-Reverte unless you can figure out how to put the accent mark in his name (which I obviously can’t). And I would have thought that avid readers would be a little more careful about how they spell an author’s name!
And finally – a picture, both because Boston Bibliophile asked for it and because who doesn’t like having a picture of a handsome fellow like Arturo Perez-Reverte on their blog?
