  • Patterson, Burrough, and ....damn, another senior moment...the Mississippi lawyer!
  • Douglas Adams (series and seperate), Richard Knaak (series), Laurel K. Hamilton (series), Micheal Crichton (seperate) I'll stop there :)
  • Paul Auster should be on your list.
  • I love Terry Prachett's Discworld series. He's written dozens of books in that series.
  • Mary Higgins Clark is the Queen of Mystery Novels! Each one is a stand alone and can be read in any order.
  • Fiction Crimewriter Elmore Leonard I Like Chomsky Criminologists Mike McGuire, Tim Newburn, Oh I am hopeless at re,embering titles and authors. I love History nd the Theatre too.
  • Jack London , Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Virginia Woolf, Mark Twain
  • James Patterson - Both. Some are in a series but still can be read in any order. John Grisham - Separate Kimberly Lawson Roby - Both
  • I like Anne McCaffrey. She has written a few series like I like. Dragonriders of Pern series The Brain & Brawn Ship series The Crystal Singer series
  • Mercedes Lackey, Tanya Huff, Lois McMaster Bujold, Robert Heinlein, and David Weber.
  • Robert Ludlum. I have read all of his books. The one I liked most was 'The Aquitaine Progression'. My own subjective opinion. Here is a list of his books. Some are in a series of 3 books or so, even though each book of a series could very well stand alone on its own singular splendor. . * The Scarlatti Inheritance (1971) * The Osterman Weekend (1972) * The Matlock Paper (1973) * The Rhinemann Exchange (1974) * The Gemini Contenders (1976) * The Chancellor Manuscript (1977) * The Holcroft Covenant (1978) * The Matarese Circle (1979) * The Bourne Identity (1980) * The Parsifal Mosaic (1982) * The Aquitaine Progression (1984) * The Bourne Supremacy (1986) * The Icarus Agenda (1988) * The Bourne Ultimatum (1990) * The Road to Omaha (1992) * The Scorpio Illusion (1993) * The Apocalypse Watch (1995) * The Matarese Countdown (1997) * The Prometheus Deception (2000) . Some of his books were left incomplete and were completed by Ghost Writers posthumously. These I have not given in the list. . List of Ludlum books courtsy:
  • Octavia L Butler. She has written series and individual books
  • my favorites are: John Grisham Jonathan Kellerman Clive Cussler Stuart Woods
  • Paulo coehlo! Not in series but indeed a great writer! The other is Thomas yardy !
  • Virginia Andrews (series and seperate) Charlaine Harris (series) John Marsden (series) Richard Laymon (seperate)
  • John Steinbeck and William Saroyan are my two favorite authors in that order. Some of their work was based on their own lives and some was pure fiction. The early work of Steinbeck seemed to be related as the stories covered basically the same groups/type of people living in the same area. Those are my favorite books of his. Saroyan wrote about his Armenian upbringing in Fresno, California. Each stands on its own but some carry similar threads. :)
  • Michael Crichton. His books are separate and unfortunately he died last year. :-(
  • Victoria Holt, they're all separate and they are ALL amazing!
  • There is only one author that I adore to the point where I have bought 5 of his books -- Giles Milton. They are each seperate, but are all to do with the history of exploration and travel - Big Chief Elizabeth is my favourite of all of them.
  • Leon Uris and James Michener for stand alone fiction with historical backgrounds. Chris Bohjalian, stand alone, novels about people not in the mainstream-dowsers, midwives, etc. Stuart Kaminsky has several differrent series of detective novels set in Russia,1930's LA,Sarasota FL, and others. Just a few...
  • Jane Lindskold. I love her books on wolves and fantasy. I think most of hers are in a series. Each book has the word "wolf" in every title.
  • Debbie Macomber does a Shop on Blossom Street series I like, and J.A. Jance does a Sheriff Joanna Brady series I like too... Children's - Ben Baglio does an Animal Ark series that so cute....I even collect them as I'm an animal lover! ha Laura Childs does a Tea series; there are lots of series writers out there nowadays. I think it is so they can get the reader hooked and then they buy more books - that's my theory any way.
  • The first author that comes to mind is Ayn Rand who has written several books and I am unsure of how many she wrote.She is a very interesting however this does not indicate that I agree with all her beliefs. I must include Clifford Simak the si/fi author who has written numerous books.This is a difficult question.
