which authors do you find the most talented or interesting?
they need not be pro white writers or ''racial'' at all.

i think my main favourites would ahve to be Fyodor Dostoevsky, Martin Amis and Graham Greene. All 3 are quite different and of different times but each one is quite ''new'' and talented in their own way. i have great time for irish writers too,lol im so predictable, ie james joyce,oscar wilde,synge and charles kickham etc.

I've restricted this to five fiction writers - but I'm really more of a non-fiction kinda guy:
1. Dostoyevsky: 'Crime and Punishment' is one of the greatest depictions of the higher soul's struggle to overcome
2. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
3. Poe: mainly his prototypical detective stories
4. Alexandre Dumas (despite his questionable ancestry - part negroid?): 'The Count of Monte Cristo' is a masterpiece
5. Shakespeare

Authors? Ah hell...

ok.

- Fyodor Dostoyevsky
- Ayn Rand (yes, the jew capitalist woman, I own all of her fiction books and they're quite good, but I have my own philosophy)
- Raymond E. Feist (fiction fantasy author, he's awesome)
- Raoul Vaneigem ("The Revolution of Everyday Life" I'm reading now, it's pretty good so far)
- JRR Tolkien (Lord of the Rings is an epic)
- Chuck Palahnuik (Fight Club is... great)
- Albert Camus (The Outsider is great).

and that's all I can think of now... there will be more... those mentioned above are mainly fiction authors, with the exception of R. Vaneigem, I just put that in because there's an awesome quote by him on the www.euvolution.com website. I'll put up my non-fiction/political authors later.

Fionn enjoys healthy confrontation, and because he is somewhat my senior we are bickering for no reason.:)

Socialist/Socialism actually means an organized society. Its the Jews that got most of our people confused with that term.

What about W.B. Yeats?
