Haha, well you'll never be satisfied if you choose L Ron for your books.
Even if he was a good writer, Id never read his stuff purely on principle.
If you like sci fi, try Phillip K. Dick who has had many of his ideas stolen by Hollywood to make many of the big hit sci fi movies we all take for granted. Or Frank Herbet's Dune series.
If you like really long fantasy sagas like Lord of the Rings, then Id suggest Steven Erickson's Malazan series. Or George RR Martin, whose Game of Thrones is the best series I have ever read.
I was at the book store the other day and they now have an ENTIRE section called "Paranormal Romance" for all the Twilight and Twilight inspired book series on vampire teen love.
Dude, what the fuck happened to vampires in the last few years. They have gone from sleek killing machines of the night... to these namby pamby emo teenagers, who think dressing in all back and having weird looking eyes makes you a totally kick ass vampire.
Dracula is rolling in his coffin I tell you!
