Henry Miller 11 CommandmentsHenry Miller, 1891 – 1980

Henry Valentine Miller was an American writer known for abandoning standard literary forms and creating his own form, fiction yet a crossover of many non-fiction styles. His novels Tropic of Cancer, Black Spring, and Tropic of Capricorn best reflect his unique style. He also wrote nonfiction works and was a painter.

Robert Heinlein, 1907 – 1988

Robert Heinlein was an American science fiction writer known as the Dean of Science Fiction Writers, a member of the Big Three of Science Fiction, and one of the most controversial writers of the time. Of his 32 novels, my personal favorites are Stranger in a Strange Land and Time Enough for Love, both dated and sexist but wonderful stories all the same.
