* His books are mega-intense in their violence and emotional content
* He uses insane words like "predacious" and "abrogate"
* He's reclusive without giving off the "I collect my urine in jars" JD Salinger vibe
* He doesn't use much punctuation (this may not be considered great by some)
* His genre experimentation makes things like Westerns and post-apocalyptic sci-fi actually interesting to read
