Best Answer

WAY too subjective a question. The answer depends entirely on whom you ask. Fitzgerald, Faulkner, Hemingway, King, Koontz...there are certainly writers who are in the top of their field, but I doubt you'd ever get much agreement on who's the best of the bunch.


Charles Dickens would be the most celebrated fiction writer of All-time in the English language.

Personally, I haven't seen anyone write anything better than his works either.
