I'd better come up with a suitable answer to that to flesh out my daydreams, then. My problem is that all of my honest influences are either cliche titans-of-the-genre types, or they're authors from completely different genres that would make you go "huh??" if you connected them to what I write. Or they're television shows and movies. Not that I think I'm freakish in this regard, it just doesn't sound as good as an answer, lol.
