'Completist' authors poll

LibraryThing lists these authors as having the most 'completist' fans, ie that those who have one book by the author are likely to have a lot more. (I'm a bit surprised not to see Lois McMaster Bujold here, or more classic crime writers.) Not all of them are in fact single authors, but we live in an imperfect world.

So which of these authors have you sampled?
