Just look at the top authors: J.K. Rowling (38,786), Stephen King (29,760), Terry Pratchett (28,551), J.R.R. Tolkien (23,010), Neil Gaiman (22,525), C. S. Lewis (21,971), William Shakespeare (16,258), Anne McCaffrey (13,127), Isaac Asimov (13,071), Jane Austen (13,061), Orson Scott Card (12,537), Douglas Adams (12,237), Robert A. Heinlein (11,947), Anne Rice (11,708)… the list goes on, and on.
OK, Jane Austin and William Shakespeare make it onto the list, but otherwise it’s me as a teenager. In fact, I’m sure I’d have enjoyed Jane Austin if one of her books had been lying around the house.
Will these people grow up to be opinion formers with their tastes intact, or simply grow up and move on?
