My favorites are:

Douglas Adams
Kurt Vonnegut
Terry Pratchett
Robert A. Heinlein
Philip K. Dick

I also like this guy named A. Lee Martinez. He only has 3 books out now but he's already shown to hold his own against stuff by Pratchett or Adams.

How many people here like George R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series?

Because I've been putting off starting A Game of Thrones for almost a year because I'm afraid it'll be really really gay

In case you didn't notice, most people have been listing authors, and not books in this thread. I'm sure a list like that would be WAY too big for many people here.

I really like Ken Follett (so to the guy who mentioned him before, I recommend his other works), also Terry Pratchett (who is hard not to love), Walter Moers (think something along the lines of german Terry Pratchett, but less satirical) , R.A. Salvatore (though I wish he'd write something not about Drizzt, since it's getting kinda tedious). Michael Crichton is pretty cool, and I recently read the Riverworld series by Philip Jose Farmer, which I can only recommend.

But Drizzt is a Drow that lives above ground and gets his friends killed & then feels bad about it!

Salvatore's Cleric Quintet is the worst fantasy story arc that I have ever subjected myself too. Also, needs more jokes.

Meh, I thought it was pretty good actually. Really, I just mentioned him 'cause he got me into fantasy which got me in to CRPGs, so I thought he deserved mentioning, seeing how I owe a lot to him from that standpoint.

Thinking on it I have read worse, but I appriciated it more because I was 16 & below & plain didn't know. For example there is one that I remember where this ginger haired boy gets a silver steak of hair from fighting some great evil & becomes a super warrior wizard thing & I really liked it, but now I can't think of it with out neon cliché signs exploding in my head.

Also, Willie is spot on with the too many Mary-Sues.
