Ooo, how about Terry Brooks and the Shanarra series? It's one of my all time favs. And Tad Williams Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn? Good stuff there. I just got a Mercedes Lackey book, but haven't read it yet. I also got a trilogy by Robin Hobb. She writes good stuff. I was going to buy the Arrows trilogy by Lackey, but they only had two. I hate not being able to read all of them. (I got a $50 Barnes and Noble gift card for Christmas)
I need to check the local library. Anyway, it's nice to know there are other fantasy lovers out there!
