Authors you used to love but can't stand any more

I was looking at my book collection, and noticed a certain shift in my reading tastes. I used to quite like Dean Koontz, have quite a few of his in my collection, but I now I can't stand his style and struggle to get through one of his books. And the same thing is beginning to happen with Richard Laymon.

Does anyone else have an author who used to be a favourite, but now you no longer like them?

I don't think that Kings wordyness is the problem as much as his recent genreshift.. I mean I loved "The Tommyknockers" and "Insomnia" but "Hearts in Atlantis" was total and utter crap,IMHO.<--Notice

I used to love Michael Crichton, then I read Prey - which had a great premise: nanobots who become self-aware - but holy crap what a stupid book... Did he sell out?? What happened???

I thought Prey kicked ass. Weird.

Yeah I used to love Koontz as well. He actually used to be my favorite author, but I to find myself struggling to finish his stuff.
