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?

That questions the distempered part;
Beneath the bleeding hands we feel
The sharp compassion of the healer's art"

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.
