Eddings, Glen Cook, and Modesitt have already been mentioned.

David Gemmell - Drenai tales (many books, but all of them can be read stand-alone)
Simon Green - Nightside series (many books, but they're short)

The best book I've read in the past couple years (by a large margin) is "The Name of the Wind" by Patrick Rothfuss. I haven't ready book 2 in the series yet (stubbornly waiting for paperback), so I don't know if the quality is maintained, but book 1 was just wonderful. Probably not going to get much love from English Literature majors looking for books that can be read on 7 levels of symbolism, but a completely enjoyable read from start to finish.
Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
