Rating: List Type:
The great man who wrote The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy trilogy, as well as the Dirk Gently novels. He greatly influenced my sense of humor, and my writing style in concerns to portraying said humor.
Whoompis's rating:
Average listal rating (15 ratings) 8.6 IMDB Rating 0
The great Welsh poet Dylan Thomas seeps through in most of my poetry.
Whoompis's rating:
Jeff VanderMeer adds new flavors to many subjects told by previous authors. But, he does it in such a way that is just... Too hard to describe. When it comes to describing seemingly minor details, I sound a lot like him.
Whoompis's rating:
Average listal rating (36 ratings) 8.5 IMDB Rating 0
How can I not have JK Rowling on here? Many of my childhood hours were utterly consumed with Harry Potter. Still, to this day, I reread the series. She was the person who first got me to start writing.
Whoompis's rating:
Susanna Clarke's brilliant take on English magic blew me away in the Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell trilogy. When describing nature and setting, I kind of adopt her style.

[Sorry for the lack of video. I couldn't find one of her reading anything.]
Whoompis's rating:
Average listal rating (16 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 0
Garth Nix has such a distinctive and wonderful writing style, I could not help but to pick up a few flairs of fantasy from him.
[Garth describing a part of one of my favorite series from him, Keys to the Kingdom.]
