Scrambled authors

Paul DiFi here, stepping in briefly to introduce my pal Phil Stephensen-Payne, noted scholar, who has some literary puzzles for us. I'll let Phil explain further. Take the stage, Phil!

I thought you might enjoy deciphering the author names in Walter Moers' THE CITY OF DREAMING
BOOKS, which I just finished reading. Many are obvious anagrams of
famous authors (and their books), while others seem to be fabricated
for effect, and a large number inbetween could well be either.

So here's the full list and I welcome all and sundry to identify as
many of the anagrammatized authors as possible,
