I just finished (in about a day) Neil Gaiman's Anansi Boys. Excellent stuff -- it starts off closer to gringo magical realism, but it's fantasy by the end of it.
I'm next going to read Patricia McKillip's latest -- Od Magic. I don't know anything about it, but suspect I'll love it.
And on top of that, Amazon just shipped In the Coils of the Snake, which I'm pretty sure is the latest Hollow Kingdom book. The Hollow Kingdom is an excellent novel (which won Mythopeoic, and which I reviewed in a spoilery review for Mythprint), and it's sequels are quite good as well; I'm curious to see how this one comes out.
But Od Magic first. And read Anansi Boys -- it's exellent; wonderful and warm and solid (and fwiw, much, well, -nicer- than American Gods).
