Stephen King. He is actually the only horror author that I have ever heard of. I don't read that much books...

Lovecraft and Poe >>>> all others...

Also...

Lumely - Necroscope series is one of the best adaptions of vampires ever
King - nothing else needs to be said
Barker - Yeah...
John Ajvide Lindqvist - Let the Right One In = WIN
Jack Ketchum - sick fuck
Palanuck - is not really horror but horrific.

I would also have to say Clive Barker and Brian Keene are my favorite, although I prefer Keene's zombie books more than any of his others.

Barker, easily. The six Books of Blood volumes are probably my favorite pieces in all of literature, and they also provided me with the template to work from for my own short stories. Of course, I worship at the altar of the other early shit (Cabal, Hellbound Heart and most especially The Damnation Game) as well. Also, I might be the only person I've heard from who liked Mister B. Gone...I found it funny as all hell, even when it got serious.

King I enjoy sometimes, but he becomes stale for me. IT, though, is one of the best books ever written.

I'm down with Lovecraft (at the mountains of madness, pickmans model, shadow over innsmouth) and Poe (the pit and the pendulum, masque of the red death, house of usher) as well.

Edgar Allen Poe hands down. Just thought I'd mention this but I do own an E.A. Poe book originaly from 1914, near mint condition. Gotta luv used book stores.

Haha - that's funny. I was thinking about posting the same thing, but you beat me to it.
= )

Dean Koontz is definitely my favorite, but I love reading in general. I'm open to any author if the book seems interesting.
