Sir Terry (Terry Pratchett. I have one tattoo in reference to his work and plan to get many more). He is my absolute favourite, with no exceptions.
George R.R. Martin, J.R.R Tolkien, Douglas Adams, Chuck Palahniuk, the Bronte sisters, Lovecraft, Edgar Allen Poe, Lewis Carol, Mary Shelley (daughter of one of my favourite feminists AND ANNNNND A VEGETARIAN by some accounts) and George Orwell.
And while maybe not 'strictly' considered a 'fiction author' I enjoy the writing of Kurtis Wiebe.

Reason: I can't believe I forgot Shelley
