Re: Author Suggestions for Biweekly Discussions

Here's the first of our author discussion threads, this one featuring Jane Austen. I've not gone in for a poll since there are a limited number of suggestions and clear winners If you've not posted here already, keep the suggestions coming for future discussions.

"At the end of the first round, I will award three points to Mr. Kaine for an excellent nonspecific condemnation, plus one bonus point for blaming the previous government and another for successfully mutating the question to promote the party line. Mr. van de Poste gets a point for a firm rebuttal, but only two points for his condemnation, as he tried to inject an impartial and intelligent observation"
- Jasper Fforde, Something Rotten

Since we can only pick three, I support those two of your picks and here are my own:
Enid Blyton
Roald Dahl
Ben Elton
