Epic fantasy list
Yours is a good list - it doesn't begin with Lord of the Rings - and I'm sure you've read or heard about Raven's Shadow (Book #1) by Anthony Ryan. Why haven't you included this in the list? Though Ryan is a relatively new author, this first book is call-in-sick good. If you haven't read this, maybe you should wait til Book 2 is out (maybe by January 2013), so that you don't have to keep rereading Book 1.
