Help me fill my reading queue!
I'm looking for engaging, character-driven fantasy/sci fi/speculative fiction books or series to read. The thing that grabbed me the most in the last year was Daniel Abraham's Long Price Quartet. What else should I read?

Other authors I love include Rosemary Kirstein, Nicola Griffith, Guy Gavriel Kay.
I like both standalone books and series (though I prefer series that are complete, despite Kirstein's presence on this list). I lean toward female protagonists, or at least stories that pass the Bechdel test
It's essential that I care about the characters and what happens to them, and preferable that I like them (or most of them) and want good things to happen. It's okay if a mix of good and bad things happen, as long as it's not all awful.
Authors people might recommend who I hate: China Mieville.
