Whose your author that you consider to be in your "core" reading group?

My primary "core reading groups" are Rex Stout and Donald Bain. I just finished up "Murder at the Powerhorn Ranch" and am now reading Rext Stout's "Some Buried Ceasar".  Rex Stout is probably my favorite mystery writer of all time!
