The Golden Age of Science Fiction  
"The golden age of science fiction is twelve." - Peter Graham

Think back to your childhood, not necessarily exactly when you were twelve, but generally around there, and name who your three favorite authors were then. Don't think about it too much, don't calculate how many books you read by each or how much time you spent on it. Just who pops to mind first when you think of your three favorite authors from that time.

I think mine were Robert A Heinlein, Anne McCaffrey, and Mercedes Lackey. Kind of an odd bunch there.

Anne McCaffrey hands down. Somewhat younger I was quite fond of Shel Siverstein, CS Lewis, and whoever wrote "The Book of 3." Older it included JRR Tolkien, David Edings, and Pierce Anthony. The year I was 12 however, it was all about Anne McCaffrey.

Cross-posting from G+, my answer is pretty easy. For a few years right around age 12, I cycled repeatedly through three series of favorite books: Tolkien (The Hobbit/LotR), McKinley (Damar), and McCaffrey (Pern). As soon as I finished the Pern series (probably either Dragondrums or Moreta), I'd start again with The Hobbit, and so on indefinitely.

For the record, I still reread Tolkien and McKinley today... though not quite so obsessively!
