There have been many but to pick a few (some many, many, many years ago):

EE Doc Smith, particularly his children of the lens series
Anne MacCaffrey about the dragon riders
Amtrak Wars (can’t remember author but topical in light of @drewlin ‘s post
Lee Child’s Jack Reacher series
Wilber Smith (every single book)
James Patterson
Douglas Adams (HitchHikers Guide was possible the best book of all time)
Wyndham

as I said….to pick just a few.

I’m a big fan of Joanne Harris.

As I was writing the above, I recalled other books of hers that I had enjoyed:

Blackberry Wine
Five Quarters of the Orange
Coastliners
Holy Fools
Sleep, Pale Sister
Gentlemen and Players
The Evil Seed
Blueeyedboy
Jigs and Reels
A Cat, a Hat, and a Piece of String.
Also her French cookery books, written in collaboration.

And, still to be enjoyed…..half way down the Pending pile, Runemarks and Runelight.

What authors have captured your imagination so much that you want to read everything they write?

I’ve just finished reading Joanne Harris, Peaches for Monsieur le Curé.
If you’ve read Chocolat, or seen the film (with Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp), you’ll enjoy this.
And, in between these two, there’s The Lollipop Shoes.
All three deal with the exotic Vianne Rocher, beginning in the village of Lansquenet, where Vianne opens a sinful chocolate shop directly opposite the church at the start of Lent, splitting the villagers into opposing camps.
In Lollipop Shoes, the action moves to Paris, where Vianne seeks refuge with her two daughters but encounters a dangerous adversary.
Then back to Lansquenet in Peaches for Monsieur le Curé.
But, eight years on, Lansquenet is different now: women veiled in black, the scent of spices and peppermint tea and, on the bank of the river Tannes, facing the church: a minaret.
