    That are epic in scope? A Song of Fire and Ice by George R.R. Martin.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    David Eddings-

    Start with Pawn of Prophecy. Then theres nine of those that follow (worth it) and if your still enthused after that, there Polgara the Sorceress- and Belgarath the sorceror, and the Rivan Codex I'm assuming, by lord of the rings, you mean fantasy epics- the unwilling young thing who's forced by fate into a role he doesn't want to have, on a long and difficult journey with a sorceror with a long white beard in robes (I kid you not, theres serious similarities. In this lot though, its not a ring, its the Orb, a rock with magical powers)

    have fun

    The Talisman by Stephen King is one of the best cont. Fantasy's I've ever read.

    I've read The Chronicles of Thomas Covennant the Unbeliever 2 trilogies in all twice now and I think they are fantastic. Stephen R. Donalson wrote them definitely worth a read. Also The Dragonriders Of Pern Trilogy by Anne McCaffrey was quite good. I agree that the Tailisman is good but I also think that his Gunslinger/ Dark Tower books are the best books Stephen King has written. You may also want to try Piers Anthony start with A Spell for Chameleon and go from there.

    The books from Feist are really good. I actually like them better than LOTR.
    Ask Rat Faced for more info about them, he has them all

    Does he have the new ones (King of Foxes, for example)? They aren&#39;t being sold where I&#39;m at, currently.

    Given the nature of your request, you really cannot go past Silmarillion. Whihc is actually a book by Tolkien detailing the mythology of the LoTR world, that is it&#39;s history, religion, source of magic etc

    Personally I find Silmarillion better than LoTR.
