One of my favorite fantasy authors of all time is Ursula K. LeGuin. I've been re-reading 'Tales From Earthsea' the last couple days, and am struck again by how very much I like her way of telling these stories (Earthsea was the first fantasy series I read): the magic is interestingly handled (and seems just 'right'), the narrative flow is smooth, the descriptions engrossing. My recollection of reading the first book includes being on BART to go to Berkeley, and winding up in El Cerrito del Norte station because I was just THAT TANGLED UP in the conversation with the dragon.

Does anyone have suggestions of authors I might enjoy if I've enjoyed LeGuin's Earthsea quintet? This is your chance to play Amazon for me, baby (but do it with a brain).
