Merenwen Inglorion I like a lot of these authors, and some I've never heard of before (whoo-hoo, more books to add to the TBR shelf ;)!

My favorites are:
Anne Elisabeth Stengl because her allegory is obvious enough for the Christian to spot and squeal about, but not so much that a non-Christian reader is going to get squashed with a Bible.
Wayne Thomas Batson because his stories are both action-packed and faith building (and his books got my little brother to start enjoying reading!).
C.S. Lewis because, well, his insights on the Christian and non-Christian life are amazing, and his fiction is a double-edged sword.
Jaye L. Knight because...have you read her stories yet? Read and you shall see and discover why she has a passel of raving fangirls. ;)
J.R.R. Tolkien because epicness and faith are jam-packed in his stories (even if he "didn't intend to" ;))
There are a lot more, but it's almost midnight in my timezone and I really need to get to bed... :P
