De lurking to rag on writers ;)

Orson Card.  The first couple fo novels were brilliant, I thought, but
everything since has been a steady slide down.

Issac Asmov. Stuff written in the later part of his life most definetly
needed an editor,

Sheri Tepper.  She is not so much gone downhill as she is uneven.  Some
stuff is great, some is awful.  There doesn't seem to be a middle ground.
