Answer on Good Fantasy Novel Recommendations?

Oh wow, you have great taste in books. Most of my favorite authors and such are already on there, haha. You should definitely check out Melanie Rawn's books if you haven't yet, and C.S. Friedman's too (although most of hers are more sci-fi than fantasy). Sarah Ash is also good, as is Neil Gaiman. Um...there's also Patricia C. Wrede, Holly Lisle, Robin McKinley, Tanya Huff, and Pamela Dean. And if you haven't read them, there's always classics like the Chronicles of Narnia, the Last Unicorn, the Neverending Story, and Madeleine L'Eingle's books (A Wrinkle in Time, etc.).
