Neil Gaiman, Catherynne Valente, Terry Pratchett, Rowling, those are some good fantasy authors there. Stephen King, when his editors have him under control. Not a big fan of Patricia McKillip's novels, but her short stories are boss. Love Bakuman, DeathNote, The Cheese in the Trap webtoon (changed how my head works, I swear.) More shoujo manga than most guys would be happy to admit. SkipBeat!, when it doesn't suck. Kare Kano and Eensy-Weensy Monsters.
Hit me up on twitter if you like. @jlluh Stories, politics, basketball, and random stuff. Pictures of plants, sometimes.
Also please check out Monstrosity, by Jonathan Lake, on Amazon. My first book was bad, so I just left it on my hard drive, but this one's alright. 'Vampires and witches and werewolves, oh my!' Sort of like if someone spent a lot of time thinking about Nietzsche, Marx, and Twilight.
I'm trying to get back into the habit of using goodreads. Oh, wow, that link isn't working. Jonathan Lovelace, on goodreads.
Live Long and Prosper.
