Not on the list, but I vote for the Oz series by Baum, Thompson, et. al. Endlessly inventive, and charming. Lots of steampunk goodness, before there was steampunk.

I suspect that Lord of the Rings would win this going away, so I am asking for second place. Let's drop The Hobbit, too? grin

My two favorites are some pretty grim ones by Poul Anderson: The Broken Sword and Hrolf Kraki's Saga.
