No question in my mind, Twain (Samuel Clemens) was/is one of the graetest writers of all time. Top 10 in the world, top 2 in American history. Thoughts? Favorite Twain book? (mine are A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court and The Innocents Abroad) But I would also count Twain as one of the undisputed masters of the short story as well. (See: The Diary of Adam and Eve and The Awful German Language) Any other fans?
