Puzzles Galore

This post is puzzles only. Bubba guessed the one above a week ago, but I paid $12 for that doll--sorry, action figure--and I want to get some more mileage out of it.

This next puzzle (right) is a tough one, I hope (Bubba). It's the name of a book. Click to enlarge and then control + to make it big enough to read.

And here are three rebuses (rebii?). They are the names of authors (click to enlarge):

Tough indeed! I only got two so far, and just wanted to get them in before anyone else beat me to the punch:
No. 3: John Steinbeck
No. 4: Joyce Carol Oates

I hope to be back soon with the first two, hope being the operative word.

Not getting the puzzle, but I guessed the second and third authors.

Good stuff, Snead.
