I am a big Dean Koontz and Stephen King fan. I never read anyone else because I'm afraid I'll be disappointed. I'm running out of books to read. Does anyone have any other authors or books they could recommend to me.

Hi, I haven't read any books written by Dean Koontz. But, I have read 2 or 3 books by Stephen King. I suggest you try reading books by Tami Hoag. Her books are well-written and suspenseful and are about serial killers. I also just finished reading a book called, "Psychopath," written by Keith Ablow. It is well-written and horrifying and is about a serial killer who is a psychiatrist. I was surprised about how good she book is! :-)

My most loved and respected author is Stephen King. I have all of his books except for a very few. My second most loved author is Anne Rice. She wrote the Vampire Chronicles. I have read all of her books except for the 'Beauty' books. Robert Ludlum is another great author. 'The Bourne Identity' etc.

Another author you might try is Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child. They write together as a team and have written some fantastic supernatural thrillers.

John Saul is another great author who writes in a similar vein to Stephen King and Dean Koontz. Chrisopher Pike is not bad either but he writes novels for teenagers/ young adults so you fly through them pretty quickly. You might also try John Herbert for suspense/horror or Mary Higgins Clark for suspense/thriller.

You can try Thomas Harris, he wrote Hannibal Rising, Silence of the lamb, Red Dragon & Hannibal just for a change..:-). So far I like those books, its quite a pages turner. Enjoy reading !

i love dean koontz too. there are a lot of good authors, depending on the type of novels you like to read.. i would suggest john grisham if you like courtroom drama... and also if you want to be inspired... read paulo coelho's novels! my personal favorite is the alchemist... it is sooo beautiful. read it you will definitely love paulo coelho.

I am an avid reader and also usualy read books that have been written by stephen king as I can pretty much guarentee myself that I will like them. However, I am beginning to run out of new stephen king novels and have started checking out the 80% off section at the book store and picking up books that look like they perhaps will be a good read. I have picked up two books for less than 5.00$ canadian and have no been disappointed! The first book I picked up was called Iccaris (sp?) Girl. The second was called House. I can not remember the name of the authors off hand (i left both books at my parents house for my brother to read). Both books were impossible to put down and I enjoyed them alot.
