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?

And in his place, as lord and slave,
Man raises forth his heinous throne."

Keynes is a great fantasy writer.

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