#1 [ELDRITCH-DARK] Genre authors who used to be favorites but aren't any more

Unless this is too negative of a topic, I thought there might be some interesting comments on the subject of genre authors one used to relish but not much now. Edgar Rice Burroughs isn't square in the middle of the weird fiction genre, but he occurs to me. I've revisited a few of his books in the past few years and read a few of them to the end, but while I kind of enjoyed them -- A Fighting Man of Mars was one, the first ERB I ever read, I think -- I'd admit that he's not a dhadow of the author for me that he was around age 14-16. Perhaps more surprisingly, Lord Dunsany doesn't hold my interest, I find; he was such a favorite back in the day of the Ballantine Adult Fantasy releases, mostof which I bought as soon as they were published. But when I revisit him now, I usually find it takes too much effort to stay with him -- though I still appreciate "The Hoard of the Gibbelins."
