Indeed.

I couldn't choose only one. Vonnegut, of course, JG Ballard, Will Self, Orwell, LOVE Margaret Attwood, a comparatively recent dicovery, Aldiss, Moorcock, most of the 'Golden Age' sf writers, the 'New Wave' writers, even the 'New Weird'... I've probably left a dozen or more out.

Ballard had the biggest influence on me as an evolving writer, along with Moorcock, but every single book you read has a greater or lesser impact.
