There is a pinned thread on favorite books but do you have any authors that you would read anything they wrote, can you reread their works and get more out of it every time? For me if I stop reading and start looking at words but see the scenes in my head then that is good writing. My absolute favorite is still Larry Niven, He hasn't written anything on his own for a long time but even his colaborations are good. The first book I read of his was Ring World and since then I've read anything he had any input on. He even wrote for Star Trek. Harry Harrison. The DeathWorld trilogy was his best but the Stainless Steel rat series was great too. The only current writer I put into that category is Jim Butcher. He writes mainly ~fantasy. and one character got a short lived TV series, The Dresden Files.
