Faenaduial has just left Hobbiton.

Everyone has mentioned some great authors and books, most of which I have read. My favorites (after Tolkien, of course) are:

Robert Jordan
David Eddings
Ann Rice

It is extremely difficult to find fantasy books that don't bear some resemblance to Tolkien. I find the truly original stories are the ones I enjoy the most.

I just finished a book by an author I haven't seen mentioned here that I enjoyed. It's The Bone Doll's Twin by Lynn Flewelling. Has anyone read some of her other books?
