I love the first 4 that bunny listed, and many of the others.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Ursula Le Guin
The Earthsea series

Isaac Asimov
The Robot Series
Foundation Series

Naomi Novik
Her Dragon Series with Temeraire

John Connelly
Any of his detective novels featuring Detective Hieronymus Bosch

I have never been disappointed by any of his historical fiction.
These are particularly good:
The Pillars of the Earth
World Without End
A Column of Fire

James Clavell
All of his Asian series:

King Rat
Tai-Pan
Shōgun
