TYB Books -- Fantasy

I discovered science fiction long before I discovered fantasy, but it was fantasy that made me an avid reader.  When I was twelve, and in sixth grade, we had to read this book called The High  King by Lloyd Alexander, and I ended up reading it like 15 times before the end of that next summer.  And it was seventh grade when I started writing my own.  Since then I've finished writing a novel, called The Dragons' Gift, which I'd like to get published.  Maybe one day, I'll be able to add it to this book list, but in the meantime, I have to start working seriously on the sequel.  Or should I do the prequel first?  Anyway, I've listed below some books by some of my favorite authors, and I'll be adding more as time goes on.  Since I've been kinda busy with school, I haven't managed to keep up with my reading for pleasure, but if I haven't read it yet, I've read enough by the author to know I've got to make time for it eventually.
