So there's this influential authors meme I've seen a few people do now. My turn.

The Rules: Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen authors (poets included) who have influenced you and will always stick with you. List the first 15 you can recall in no more than 15 minutes, and they don't have to be listed in order of relevance to you.

CS Lewis
JRR Tolkien
Kurt Vonnegut
Anne Rice
Tracy Hickman and Margaret Weis
Mervyn Peake
HP Lovecraft
Robert Munsch
Terry Pratchett
Douglas Adams
Beatrix Potter
Hans Christian Anderson
JK Rowling
AA Milne
Neil Gaiman

Combination of things I loved as a child/teenager and thus have had a lasting impact for better or for worse, and things I love now. And I know that I've forgotten some really important writers; half the time I couldn't tell you a favourite book if you ask me on the street -- I always manage to forget these things. :|

ALSO also. I'm going to see Deathly Hallows tomorrow at midnight! Nevermind that I haven't seen a Harry Potter movie since the third one; I AM SO EXCITE.

I'm kind of surprised that I don't know seven of these authors you listed. And I know that 'couldn't tell you a favorite book' thing; if some one ask me that, I'd need my book collection and a couple of hours. I'm thinking snagging this one.
