Robert A. Heinlein and Philip K. Dick are my biggest influences as a speculative science fiction writer. I’m personally more militaristic and libertarian in my writing and in my worldview on life as Heinlein was but always borrow elements heavily from Philip K. Dick in my works with elements of cyberpunk, military science fiction, and paranoid fiction throughout my literature. I would have to say that out of the two. Robert A. Heinlein has shaped me as a writer and author in every aspect who is my greatest influence in my literary work with a penman’s prose. Robert A. Heinlein in my opinion in the importance of being earnest is also the biggest influence to my life as my peers have referred to me as the Millennial Robert A. Heinlein but in truth their is no comparison to Robert A. Heinlein’s profound genius.
My top three favorite series are as follows:
- The Dune series by Frank Herbert.
- The Ender’s Game series by Orson Scott Card.
- The Hyperion series by Dan Simmons.
