I’m the sort of reader who regularly jumps around between authors and among genres.
When I discover an author I really love, I might read everything from their back catalogue I can find only to go years before picking up anything else from them depending on if they’re still alive and how often they publish new novels.
That is to say, I’ve read many books from the following authors, but I can also go long stretches of time before returning to them again.
Almost everyone on my list is a science fiction or fantasy author because those are my favourite genres. I’m particular about which types of SFF I like to read, so when I find an author who has the same tastes I dive into everything I can find from them.
Do any of you follow similar patterns?
