Stopped reading Alastair Maclean when it dawned on me he was a fascist.Like Joe and others, I have enjoyed Uris and Mitchener. My other fav. American writers are --hold your breath --Louis Lamour [I even read most of his "Sackett' novels] and a much neglected author , McKinlay Kantor ["Spirit Lake" and "Andersonville"]. Tolkein is on my list,as is Stephen King--I would recommend "Hearts in Atlantis". My younger days were lightened by home grown stuff from Gibbon, Dickens and Scott.
