Today I was in Barnes And Noble when I wondered, "What contemporary authors will one day be compared named along with the Twains, Steinbacks, Orwells, Fitzgeralds and Tolstoys of the past.
Looking through the Barnes and Noble mostly all I saw was (as far as modern novels go) novels written for superficial entertainment. For example, Tom Clancy, as much as I enjoy his books, they have no depth or meaning to them beyond what you read. The same goes for Michael Crichton. So I ask you, who are today’s signifigant writers?
