Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Authors I Wish Would Write Another Book
I know his son and others have tried to continue the Dune saga but nothing can compare to what Frank Herbert himself wrote. I still remember getting to the end of "Chapter House of Dune" and realising there would be no more from this great author.
As with Frank Herbert, others have continued the story he created but I would much rather have read the final novels in the massive wheel of time series as he would have written them.
I would love to see what this amazing Science Fiction author could come up with nowadays in a world full of technology well in excess of what he could have imagined.
His books were some of the ones I loved the most in my childhood and I just wish there were more out there to read for myself and my own children.
It seems that every book nowadays with his name on it seem to be written by or with someone else. Tom, I loved the books you wrote on your own! Please write another one without the help of someone else!
The Scottish Bard who wrote some amazing pieces of literature, poetry and song in the late 18th Century. I would love to see what he could write about his beloved homeland now in the present day.
The Lord of the Rings and his entire Middle Earth novels were superb and I would have loved to read more from this hugely detailed world.
I have probably watched a multitude of TV shows based upon her novels but those TV producers really need some new material. If only she was still around to provide it!
Peter F. Hamilton
Peter is very alive and still writing books but he never writes them quick enough! Forget that I just read his last book of short stories at the tail end of 2011! He needs to bring out more superb space opera and he needs to do it now!
The author of my youth actually writes Adult Fiction in between churning out the latest Last Vampire novel. I just wish he would hurry up and produce some more, I think the last adult novel he wrote was back in 2007!
