I have been reading OSC's books since 1985, and he has been my favorite author overall. I have read some books by others, but very few capture my attention or keep my interest as much as the way Card writes. Unfortunately when he has nothing new to read, I struggle to find another book or author.
Does anyone else feel the same? If so, what other authors do you enjoy as much as OSC?

Try Neil Gaiman. His novels are entertaining, well-written, and easy to read. My favorites of his are Neverwhere, American Gods, and The Ocean at the End of the Lane.

I love OSC's books, but strongly disliked "American Gods." It turned me off of ever reading anything else by Gaiman.

I follow three other authors the same way I do OSC:

Jim Butcher
Patrick Rothfuss
Mark L. Van Name

All of their books have hit the right notes for me to keep my interest.

May I ask what put you off about it? I've recently considered picking it up.

While a lot of it is pretty badly dated (glaring sexism and tech extrapolations that haven't aged particularly well), I've enjoyed most of what Niven has put out solo, and quite a bit of what he's put out with writing partners.
