Try David B Coe or John Marco. Both are underrated epic fantasy authors in my view. You may want to check out my book, Druid's Bane, while you are at it :).

Phillip,
I loved Coe's Winds of the Forelands series and John Marco's Tyrants and Kings series too. I checked out your book and I thought it looked really good but $25 for a paperback is more than my budget can afford. Do you have any plans for a mass market paperback?

A kindle version will be released soon. But my publisher (Acclaimed Books) only do TPB (Trade paper backs) at this point in time. It doesn't help that I write very long books either. Sorry.

You may want to look at another New Zealand author of epic fantasy; Russel Kirkpatrick. He's big downunder, and only been released in the US in the last couple of years so is still a bit of an unknown I suspect. Start with Path of Revenge.

I hope that is help fully, Heather.

Regards, Phil

robin hobbs " The Tawny Man" series starting with "the Assasin's Apprentice". Very satisfying books, an all time favorite....

Thanks Phillip for the response. I don't own a Kindle so hopefully down the road your book will be available in a mass market paperback. The review I read on Amazon was very positive. The fact that you write very long books is a plus for me. The George R.R.Martin books are all very long and they are some of my all time favorites. Thanks for the heads up on Russel Kirkpatrick too. I will check him out. Jennifer Fallon and Fiona McIntosh, who are both based in Australia, are two of my favorite current writers so I am excited about looking at Kirkpatrick's work. There seems to be a lot of good fantasy coming out of the Aussie/NZ area. Thanks again.

Ken Scholes, The Psalms of Isaak. Really great series. I read the same stuff you do and I really like this series. Check it out.

Phillip,
I prefer to purchase from Amazon but I did search a couple of other suppliers and did not come up with that price. I got close and I think I will give pick up your book. Thanks for all the information.

Am I blind or did I not see George RR Martin in your list..... a must read. Joe Abercrombie is putting out some good books.... I agree with the Robin Hobb suggestion, she has at least 4 trilogies, 3 are related but all can stand alone and are worth a read. Also, I really loved Tad Williams Memory, Sorrow and Thorn trilogy starting with "The Dragonbone Chair" its a classic story arc but it is a very well executed series touching the archetypes while still feeling semi-original.... finally, step into historical fiction with some Jack Whyte starting with "the Skystone" its a "realistic" look at arthurian myth starting a few generations before Arthur and culminating about 8 or 10 books later with the once and future king himself... hope it helps
