Rules for this Poll:
- Anyone is allowed to participate (must be a valid member of Listal, though)
- You can provide up to five authors, the first being your favorite of all time. The first receives five points and the last receives one point.
- If you do not put them in order (and please say if you do not), each author will get three points.
- Only the first 100 reactions will be counted.
- When two authors have the same points, the author with the most voters goes ahead.
- When two authors have the same points and the same voters, the first one added goes ahead.
* Copied mostly from Mr. Saturn.
- Any author on Listal is eligible for voting.
- Once your vote is counted, it won't be changed (this goes for me too).

I will attempt to update this list at least once a day, schedule permitting.

This was extremely difficult but since it says "greatest" I went with the ones who not only are amazing writers but who inspired me to delve deeper into the genre of fantasy. It was easy ranking my top two. After that they all kind of fell equal into a third place tie, but I tried. :)
