Journeys, quests, monsters, etc.  I've required an urge to read some GOOD Fantasy Adventure books.

Edit: God dammit, move this to the right section.  Doesn't belong in paranormal.

Try reading some classic authors for free as an e-book download.  

Mark Twain, Jules Verne, etc.

I am another anonymous face in the crowd. I am just another tiny wheel in the machinery of the world I live in.

While both of those authors are really talented, they do not fit my needs at all right now.

Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan has monsters, quests, journeys etc, and i enjoyed the story. think lord of the rings type stuff...
the only downside is that the series goes on forever.

Must it have fantasy in it? This one is a *great* and exciting adventure novel.

2 words - forgotten realms. R. A Salvatore's books on the likes of Drizzt Do'Urden are DEFINEATELY worth reading...though if you have already, then sweet ^^

Any of the Elric of Melniboné series by Michael Moorcock.

Anything by Robert E. Howard

Any of the fantasy novels by Poul Anderson, i.e. The Broken Sword and Hrolf Kraki's Saga

I forgot Ursula LeGuin and her Earthsea Trilogy.
