The author I would love to go out and have a drink with is Edward Allen Poe. Why I would love this is because he is a person that is all about mystery to leave you wondering.

Honestly? If language barriers weren't a problem, Albert Camus. I think his work is really thought-provoking, and it helped me through some pretty difficult times.

I'd like to buy Hilary Mantel a drink, but I rather suspect she wouldn't choose beer.
If we can go back in time, then definitely Shakespeare.

P.C. Cast and it'd probably be more like vodka or something, she doesn't really come off as a beer person lol.

Thoreau. I would love to hear his thoughts on today's face-paced world. I imagine the beer would probably be something he made himself and we could drink it as we strolled through nature, observing all its splendor. :)

I want to drink a beer or two with Stephen King so that I can say to him how overrated he is.

I'd get some whisky with Hemmingway to talk about his clear problems with toxic masculinity.

Anais Nin. But it would be absinthe, of course.

I would not enjoy a glass of beer with anybody, because I hate beer. But I would dearly love to have a cup of tea with George Eliot, a glass of wine with Charles Dickens, or a tequila with Gabriel García Márquez.

Definitely Edgar Allan Poe, master creator of most of my nightmares. And granted I'm not a beer person, this meeting could only end in more alcohol nightmares.

Stephen King, Douglas Adams, and Harlan Coben.
I say Shakespeare but Stephen King is a good one too!

I would like to have dinner with Sherrilyn Kenyon. That way, I get to ask her if she is a descendant of one of the gods because she never stops writing about them.
