I don't like Sci Fi, but I LOVE fantasy. My favorite authors in that genre are: Mercedes Lackey (but only her Valdemar ones, not her elf ones), Raymond Feist (although I think that after 20+ years, I'm finally getting tired of his Magician series, not sure yet though), J.K. Rowling, Michael Scott, Rick Riordan, and Angie Sage.
One of my favorite series is an old one. I don't know if anyone here has ever read it - Children of Morrow and it's sequel, Treasures of Morrow.
My first fantasy series (long ago and far away) was a great one for young readers - Enid Blyton's Wishing Chair series.
I love sci-fi fantasy books. I wish Martin would get off his butt and finish his next book..lol
I just finished a really good sci-fi fantasy book from an unknown author named Heath Strickland. Its called "Bastard of Baator".
It had a pretty interesting looking cover so I decided to pick it up.
I'm going to check out some of these authors that some of you have mentioned. Never heard of a few of them.

seriously! It's hard to hate him and I don't want him to rush it, but I've been dying here waiting to see when Dance of Dragons might be finished. I remember seeing it available for pre-orders on Amazon over the fall, and I was going to pre-order it, but I guess it was a false alarm and the page got taken down
I'm now hearing fall of '09. i may have to skim over Feast of Crows to familiarize myself w/ fine details of the plot; it's been almost a year since I put it down
It's been longer than that for me (for Feast).
I think maybe this spring I will go through the entire series all over again.
I picked up the first book right around last Xmas (I'd been avoid the series b/c I'd heard there wasn't a lot of magic in it, and I was very much into magic back then), and got immediately hooked and finished the whole series by April. I have a slight advantage over some fans b/c I came into the series very late (some poor souls have been waiting years for this new book!). honestly, this is why I'm not touching the Wheel of Time series until I get a publication date of the last book. it sucks to wait so long between books

I'm beginning to doubt that Martin is ever going to finish it. If it's taken him him two years to finish a book that he keeps saying is "almost done," that tells me he's having a lot of trouble.
I hope I'm wrong. I loved books 1 and 3 a lot and liked 2. I've decided to continue with the series until they're all out though. This waiting five years between books is for the birds.
Asimov, the robot stories and Foundation series
Robert Asprin, the Myth series and the Phule series
Brian Jacques, Redwall series
Heinlein, the future history series, and Lazarus Long
McCaffrey, of course
E.E. "Doc" Smith, Lensman series (I need to find them again, to re-read!)
Who can recommend me an adult fantasy book. By adult i dont mean sexual(althought I dont mind lol)
i mean blood guts and gore, dark, sinister etc.
Looking for something epic, not just one book and done.
