James Hilton
George Orwell

Both of these authors have very famous/popular books, but their lesser-known works are worth reading as well.

"What" are they? Human beings, to the best of my knowledge. I'm not sure what you are asking.

while i enjoy the "big names" ( started reading everything from King, Straub, etc in the 80's), i have been trying to broaden my options whether it's indie authers picked up thru my nook or first time writers i see on the shelf. As i tend to prefer fantasy novels (even at the age of 50, cant seem to get enough of dragons and elves lol), i've found that some of those newbies can pen a great storyline, same as a best selling author can put one out that's maybe, uh, "not so good"....

Guess if i like the characters and plotlines, i'll continue reading a series regardless of who's name is on it. So for every favorite 'big name author' like Martin, Tolkien, and Feist i've also enjoyed new series such as those from indie author Joseph Lallo and those penned by Paolini (his 1st Eragon book written when he was a teen).

It changes, depending on what I've been reading lately. Charles Dickens is always on the list. Chaim Potok is one I haven't read lately but have been thinking about.
