I like the standards (Tolkien, Jordan, Martin), but a few good authors whom I've read in the last year or two have been Jack Vance, China Mieville, Brandon Sanderson, and Patrick Rothfuss.

Does anyone else have anyone else they would recommend, or would they like to wax poetic about a certain favorite author?
"See now Oblivion shimmering all around us, its very tranquility deadlier than tempest. How little all our keels have troubled it. Time in its deeps swims like a monstrous whale; and, like a whale, feeds on the littlest things -- small tunes and little unskilled songs of the olden, golden evenings -- and anon turneth whale-like to overthrow whole ships."
- Lord Dunsany -

"We enjoy, we see nothing by direct vision; but only by reflection, and in anatomical dismemberment."

Keynes is a great fantasy writer.

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

A romance writer as well. That man had some very dirty journals.
