Some of my all time favorites would have to be the Hyperion Cantos (Hyperion, Fall of Hyperion, Endymion, Rise of Endymion) by Dan Simmons.

Then there's also the Old Man's War novels by John Scalzi (Old Man's War, The Ghost Brigades, The Last Colony, and Zoe's Tale) - which are some of the most enjoyable scifi books I can remember reading in a long time.

As far as modern-ish (compared to the John Carter novels) classics go I'll echo the suggestions of the Foundation books by Asimov. They last one or two novels do get a bit goofy at times though.
