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'm sure nobody really cares, but I just recently bought Memories Of The Space Age by J. G. Ballard (Arkham House, 1988). I'd read Ballard here & there before (perhaps the odd short story) and was not particularly impressed. This collection of stories brings together his Cape Canaveral stories. Thematically linked, in setting & tone, I found them captivating. This is one of the best short story collections I've read in years.

Lots of interesting suggestions in this thread. I will check them all out in time. Has anyone read the books of Robin Hobb, I've read some positive reviews on other sites.
