I haven't read much modern fantasy outside the works of Tolkien and Lewis, but I do enjoy the dystopian genre a lot (though this is probably a sub-genre of SF).

Also, I've read Ender's Game (again, more SF) and really enjoyed it, and I read the first Harry Potter book over the summer, but was sadly disappointed.

I beat Khamul to it, and changed the title.

Still my title...

I'll put in a plug for another site that I am member of, as that is a much better site for this type of question, we stick here to what the site is renowned for, collecting Tolkien.

Much better site indeed...

Like Red, I too had a time when I was looking for fiction which would be similar to Tolkien's works, and tried reading a lot of the popular, best-selling fantasy/sf authors. None of these really were much to my liking, though.

What I've enjoyed, however, are those authors which have had a fresh perspective in speculative fiction, and which are good writers: I've much liked Jack Vance's Lyonesse series and the Dying Sun series. I'm currently reading Gene Wolfe's The Book of the New Sun series, which so far (just started with the second volume) I find to be really good. I've also been intrigued by some works of Robert Holdstock. An usual (in this context) recommendation would also be Philip Roth's The Plot Against America, falling under the label of "alternative history".

On a Dutch auction site somebody is selling it with a minimum price of EUR800. You have to pick it up yourself though because it's a very heavy item....

He has posted before on this forum, as Mark Faith, he organized a Tolkien festival in Wales last year that you may have read about.

I agree this item is at top end that anyone would pay i.e. not priced for a quick sale (£50 is still a good price for this excellent book)
