Differences in editions might put these under 900 pages, but then again might put about any 800 page over the 900 page limit.

The Witching Hour by Anne Rice is 1054 pages in the mass market paperback.
The paperback of Walter J. Williams' The Rift is 932 pages.
The Ballantine paperback of From Sea to Shining Sea By James Alexander Thom is 931 pages.
The paperback Revised Edition of Marion Zimmer Bradley's Mists of Avalon is 1009 pages.
From Here to Eternity by James Jones is 955 pages in paperback.

Well, yeah!

James Jones - "Some Came Running"
Herman Wouk - Take your pick: There are some nice, big, FAT, juicy ones!

And one of my favorite writers, especially if we're including trilogies that form one book:

Henry Miller - "The Rosy Crucifixion Trilogy" [Sexus, Plexus, Nexus]

Another long book is Magician (author's preferred edition) by Raymond E. Feist.

This is split into 2 books in the US but is one complete book in the UK. It can be had as a complete eBook. I have it as a complete eBook.

Anthony Adverse

Vast novel by Hervey Allen. Over 800 pages in hardback. Paperback edition divided into 3 volumes.

It's in the Patricia Clark memorial Library, right here, free.

Just picked up the omnibus edition of the Lyonesse trilogy from

and it was a pleasant (re)read (and nice to not have to worry about further damaging my original paperbacks).

Nice fantasy story. I enjoyed it a lot.

Glad you enjoyed it!

Roger Zelazny's compleat Amber chronicles has not yet been recommended, but annoyingly it was only released in paperback:

H. Beam Piper's Terro-Human Future omnibus is a great set of stories:

The Executioner's Song - Norman Mailer. A chilling 'novel' and an incredible read.

Harlot's Ghost - Norman Mailer - Actually unfinished, due to Mailer's death.

The Company: A Novel of the CIA - Robert Littell - I have not yet read this one.

The Kindly Ones - Jonathan Littell - This is a very disgusting novel, (his second novel), but I'm glad I read it. (I purchased this on July 1, 2009. It was the very first ebook purchased for my very first Kindle.) For the sheer intellectual growth of this writer, one I find ASTONISHING in the history of writing, read this huge novel and the themes it handles compared with his very first novel, an SF piece of dreck called Bad Voltage, published in 1989.

There's The Goldfinch, of course. I think the larger format paperback is 700, but I own the smaller which is over 800 (and feels better to hold IMO).
