Letterboxers as Writers

Some letterboxers and the writers they remind me of; check the notes for descriptions. Note that I'm not trying to say that they're necessarily "as good" or "as bad" as these writers, only that their writing style strikes me as similar in some way. This is my tribute to you beautiful jerks who, in some small way or fashion, have managed to influence either my writing or movie appreciation. I will be adding to this list as I think of more comparisons, so don't get all hot and bothered if I haven't included you yet. Also, my apologies in advance if you don't like the writer I compared you to. And if you're not following any of these people, then what the hell's your goddamned problem?!
