Science fantasy book question?

My last question got removed for some reason, so I'll try again. I'm currently deployed and love to read. No library or books stores to brouse through. I've read all of the Tolkien, Terry Brooks, Raymond Feist, David Farland, Frank and Brian Herbert, Goodkind and Jordan I can get my hands on. I need some good suggestions for science fantasy books. If you replied to my question last time. Please do so again. My question was deleted before I copied any of the suggestions down.

Thank you in advance.

    Joe Haldeman

    Read the Sten series

    for fantasy






    want more, I know these books and authors like the back of my hand. I have more. Tell me what type of scifi or fantasy you read - for example like military scifi Drake's Hammer's Slammers or "the Forever War" by Haldeman. I'll recommend specific sets. Just let me know what you want. Just add additional details.

    addition: your other answers have good suggestions also. The Simon Green Nightside series would be an excellent light reading "escape". He also has a third older fantasy series that's pretty good. Piers Anthony is excellent. His scifi is his older stuff but well worth reading. His "Incarnations of Immortality" especially the first book "On a Pale Horse" is very good. Overlooked but great reading is his Bio of a Space Tyrant series (bad title but good books). Arthur C Clarke is one of the Grand Masters. You have a good lot of suggestions so far.

    There's also Piers Anthony, he's written mostly fantasy, but plenty of science-fiction as well. There's Neil Gaiman, H.G. Wells wrote some classic science-fiction, as did Jules Verne, although Verne gets heavy-handed with the scientific explanations.

    There are also series of books that are based on television programs that are written by a variety of authors. Depending on what your likes and dislikes are, you have plenty to choose from.

    And btw, good luck over there.

    Barbara Hambly does some great SF but when you look at hers make sure it is the sf since she also does other things.

    Donaldson is good and he also has series
