Looking for recommendations for fantasy novels.

I'm currently looking for some new fantasy books to read. The last thread I found that was closest to this was in 2004, so I figure some new stuff has come out since then. I'm looking for books that are actually well written, and aren't overly dense or ridiculous.

I've read all of A Song of Ice and Fire, The Dark Tower, the Belgariad, and His Dark Materials. I've also read a fair amount of Discworld. American Gods was an excellent book, and I've read some of Gaiman's other stuff. And I've read all of Harry Potter (and obviously LotR).
Wheel of Time is not in the list because I made it three and a half books in before I realized that I had no idea what was going on.
I guess I'm not restricting myself to straight fantasy; if there are any well-written steampunk novels, for example, I'd look into those. Oh, and if anyone has advice on blogs, etc. for ways to keep track of new books coming out. Thanks!
