WILLIAM GOLDMAN might have been an oversight? Off the top of my head, the only titles I recall are LORD OF THE FLIES and THE PRINCESS BRIDE. I'm a little sorry you did not include ROBERT HEINLEIN, but I only recommend his earlier works; in his elder years his work really went downhill (in my humble opinion).
I am new to Listal.com and hope I'm not invoking the local etiquette police by addressing you here. Is there a way to send private notes? Do you think I'm a creepy stalker person? I am a retired librarian and a homebody. :)
