There is, has never been, and most like will never be another author as deep and timeless both psychologically and philosophically. Even though his works are based on aristocratic 1800-century Russia, his themes and characters are as universal as the time itself.

Günter Grass wasn't just a master storyteller, but also a master of language, a master of chaotic order of things, with just as dry and surreal sense of humor. It's very hard to really make sense why I or anybody enjoy his body of work, but what the hell!

Master of 21th century surrealist literature. Truly one of a kind personality, whose body of work will be celebrated as the finest, most imaginative of it's kind.

The best way I can describe Hesse's style is: surreal and mythical stories with allegorical and philosophical elements here and there. Not everyone likes his works, but I love them. It's all great to me.

There's no epic and masterful storytelling like some of the best works of Tolstoy. He's also known for his warm humanist ideals and radical christian ethics. Must read for everybody.

One of the first authors I remember loving. Poe was a literary genius, whose influence can still be seen and heard everywhere. Some might know him for his horror stories, but he also created modern detective stories and pioneered Symbolist literature.

Rate:
Yukio Mishima was an artist who really didn't always clearly see the difference between his art and reality. Not only was he a truly unique storyteller and personality, but his high quality body of work has a stamp of deep honesty most lesser artists simply lack: you can literally dive deep into his mind and learn to understand his motivations and perversions just by reading his novels.

Masterful humorist/satirist and storyteller with both a distinct lively and playful wit and an imagination of a child. So far I have never read a bad work from him.

Love at the first sight. This man has the real talent of storytelling. Must find more of his stuff.

One word: epic. Not just the scale of his epochs, but also the masterful endlessly rich style he writes makes them feel grander than life and just as timeless and universal to read. They call them classics for a reason, you know.

When it comes to dry and sarcastic humor, there is no other like Kurt Vonnegut. Alongside Dostoyevsky and Tolstoy he was one of the early authors I fell in love when I started reading stuff.

Rate:
The legendary cult artist and oddball of science fiction. His highly surreal creative body of work has become the staple of the genre. Ever heard of Blade Runner?

Rate:
Nobel prize winning master of prose and poetry. Also worked on film industry and wrote many early Japanese classic films.
Darth Brutus's rating:
Rate:
A gigantic figure of Russian realist literature and a pioneer of now infamous Socialist realism. His autobiographic trilogy is a must read.

One of the greatest Italian storytellers and intellectuals of 20th century. Both his fictional and more academic works are highly recommended.

Master of historical epoch. Mika Waltari has been widely regarded as one of the greatest Finnish authors of all time and his magnum opus Sinuhe as the single finest and most beloved Finnish novel of all time.

Definitely not high art, but I enjoy her original Assassin trilogy quite a bit.
