Who gets royalties from you?

I'm curious. Whose books will you snap up without waiting for used copies?

I'm not consistent. It depends on whether conditions are right; if I'm desperate for something that I can rely on to be just what I need, if I'm about to get on a plane for five hours, etc. I'd definitely count paying $14+ for a new trade paperback, or $8.99 for mass-market too. Authors who've made the list at least once in the last few years: Lee Child, Lawrence Block, Reginald Hill, Minette Walters, Val McDermid, Peter Robinson, Giles Blunt, Denise Mina, Ruth Rendell, J.K. Rowling, John Morgan Wilson, Ann Rule. Short list, really. I'll bet some of you have long ones. *pokes*

Meanwhile.
