Hitch hikers guide to the galaxy series - Douglas Adams. Much much funnier than the recent movie or the BBC tv series.
2001, 2010, 2061, 3001. - Arther C Clark. The master of the genre. Highly recommended
- Deathgate Cycle from Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman
- Riftwar Saga (and following saga's) from Raymond E. Feist.
- Dragonlance Chronicles from Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman (again)
- Saga of Recluce from L. E. Modesitt
- Warbreaker from Brandon Sanderson
- Elantris from Brandon Sanderson
Should give you something :P

What the hell did you just write? Robert Jordan certainly isn't the author of Way of Kings.first book of that is Wizard's First Rule. Also, look into the Way of Kings by Robert Jordan.I'm absolutely confused why people are listing all these fantasy and sci-fi series when the stuff listed in the OP is pretty much all Urban Fantasy.Only the first one is out so far, but the second one comes out Fall 2013 I believe.

thats the thread title.
hes looking for Sci-Fi and Fantasy series. everything listed certaintly fits that profile. just because all hes read so far is urban fantasy does not mean hes not looking to expand what he reads.
if no one ever expanded upon what they read wed all be reading Dr Suess until the day we died.
and your awfully antagonistical. say what you want about you not likeing SoT/WoT (I agree with you on SoT not being that great) but the fan base for Wheel of Time is huge, the reviews for the books are normally great, and the series has had a lot of books become best sellers.

A Song of Fire and Ice by George R. R. Martin is one of the best if not the best Fantasy series of all time IMO. The first and second books have been made into HBO adaptations called "Game of Thrones"
My favorite Sci fi books
"Neuromancer" av William Gibson (stor insperationskälla till bla Deus Ex)
"Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheeps?" av Philip K. Dick (Blade Runner)
"Snow Crash" av Neal Stephenson
"Ender's Game" av Orson Scott Card
Based on the books you listed, The Chronicles of Amber series by Roger Zelazny might be right up your alley.
Arthur C. Clarkes - The Songs of Distant Earth.
A book that also has album full of music made to by Mike Oldfield. Bjuuuutifuul stuff!
