The Aeronaut's Windlass by Jim Butcher

Butcher has ventured into steampunkish high fantasy, though their power crystals get more play than their stem engines.  I like this better than Dresden Files. It is definitely a series; the action of this book is resolved, but the next conflict is thoroughly set up.

Small Gods

Small Gods by Terry Pratchett

One of the stand-alones, with only a few allusions to other works (and a few future works with allusions to it) in Discworld.  Also, I think, one of the weaker ones.  "See, I can depict gods as dorks" is somewhat weaker as a gag than some writers realize.

The Forgotten Beasts of Eld by Patricia A. McKillip

An early  novel.  Her prose style is still evolving, and you can see some other implications, but still entrancing.

The rest of the trilogy by Terry Pratchett.  (Pay no attention to rumors of more books.) And spoilers ahead for the first one.

The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett

The first book in the Tiffany Aching trilogy, the Discworld YA books.  (Helps a bit if you've read some of the Witch books first.)  I was at first wary because his first venture in YA did not impress me.   This is much better.
