Well, assuming you dig a broad rage.... I read everything written by Charles de Lint and Neil Gaiman, if your in a fantasy mood. Jacqueline Carey has become another fave, leaning toward romantic fantasy - she writes wonderfully (and she's a little naughty). Robin McKinley writes some great YA and urban fantasy. For something really cool, check out "Bad Monkeys" by Matt Ruff - I recently read it in one night!
Hope that helps, Liz. BTW, I got my First Step Contest confirmation - your the best!
Harrison : totally agree about Rice and Hamilton, what a shame...
