My current favorite is Patrick Rothfuss. No other author knows how to tell a story like that man--at least so far as I've read. My childhood favorite is Tamora Pierce, and a few others include Neil Gaiman, Jesse Hajicek and a fabulous livejournal author by the handle of Madame Manga. Oh, also CLAMP and Hiroaki Samura.
