C.J. Cherryh. Anything she's ever written but especially the "Chanur" series, the "Foreigner" series the "Faded Sun" series and the "Fortress" series. She writes both fantasy and sci-fi and is one of only a handful of authors that does both very well.
"His Dark Materials" by Philip Pullman. This series starts with "The Golden Compass" and is excellent.
Harry Potter (if you haven't already).
"Eternity Road" and "Ancient Shores" (or anything else) by Jack McDevitt.
"The Postman" by David Brin
"Expendable" by James Allen Gardner. He's written a bunch of loosely related books so start with this one. It's not that they're in any order or dependant on each other but thyis one was first and explains all the terminology (like "going 'Oh Sh*t'") in the books the best.
I'll PM you a complete list of the "Dark Tower" books and all of the tie-ins.
