Thank you very much friend. I agree with your ranking. I waited for three months for a different view point. May be, today's readers are not interested in American writers.

Thanks for the vote. It's too bad you didn't get more responses. I can't say I'm surprised though. I really don't think people read classical literature all too much anymore. Look at the multimedia sensory overload people are exposed to today. It's a shame. ‹(°¿°)›
