15 Authors

Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen authors (poets included) who've influenced you and who will always stick with you. List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes. Tag at least fifteen friends, including me, because I'm interested in seeing what authors my friends choose. (To do this, go to your Notes tab on your profile page, paste rules in a new note, cast your fifteen picks, and tag people in the note.) 

In alphabetical order:

Jane Austen

Emily Bronte

Don Cupitt (theologian)

Stephen Donaldson (writer of bad fantasy - first exposure to environmentalism)

Fyodor Dostoevsky (if only for Notes from Underground, which I refuse to re-read)

Alistair MacIntosh (environmental activist and spiritual writer)

Herbert Marcuse

Grant Morrison

Anais Nin

Fernando Pessoa (for the Book of Disquiet)

Adam Philips (psychologist)

Laetitia Sadier

Sheri Tepper (feminist SF)

JRR Tolkien (for better or more probably for worse)

Leo Tolstoy
