I'm am omnivorous reader, but I'll admit I've slanted my reading toward science fiction for most of my life. When I've branched out, I've discovered amazing works by incredible authors, and I want to keep finding 'em! Since I'm not as tuned in to non-scifi, I was hoping I could ping you folks for some suggestions.
So do me a favor and fill in these blanks:
"The best non-science fiction author I've ever read is __________________ !"
"The best non-science fiction book I ever read is ____________________ !"
(p.s. Non-fiction is good too ... I love biographies, histories, business thinking, and personal growth books!)
