- J. D. Salinger all the way! I'm a Salinger freak and would love it if he had written another book in his lifetime.
- Christi Phillips - she writes such fun historical fiction with a twinge of mystery! I know she is supposedly writing a new book set in France but I haven't heard much about its progress.
- Stieg Larsson - I'm not usually much of a thriller fan but his Millenium Trilogy was unputdownable! Unfortunately, his untimely death means no more Larsson books in the future.
- Hermann Hesse - his philosophical novels are so thought-provoking! I would love it if he had written another before his passing.
- Sarah Addison Allen - she just published The Peach Keeper but I already want more! She's fantastic with Southern magical realism novels and I just eat them up.
- F. Scott Fitzgerald - another one of my favorite authors! Who wouldn't love to read another book about 1930s decadence from this master?
- Patrick Rothfuss - this is a bit of a cheat because I know he's in the process of writing the last novel of his Kingkiller Chronicles. However, I also predict that it will be several years before I can get my greedy hands on this book!
- Jane Austen - can you imagine if she had written another?? She died much too young, if it had been otherwise we would doubtless have many more masterpieces from Austen.
- Suzanne Collins - The Hunger Games Trilogy was such a great addition to current YA - I'd love to see what she comes up with next!
- Kate Morton - I really loved The Forgotten Garden and I eagerly look forward to her next endeavor!
