I would say try Snow White, Rose red again -- I really enjoy it!  de 
Lint's Jack the Gaint-Killer (now published in a one book for two 
volumes as Jack of Kinrowan) is wonderful.  Pamela Dean's Tam Lin is 
fun, although not as good as F&H (obviously...sorry F&H is my 
favorite book).  Nightengale is okay.  I had fun with it mainly 
because I was studying that period of Japenese history at the time. 
Sun, Moon and Stars is not _as good_, imho, but it's still a good 
read.  The new one, White as Snow (Tanith Lee) has had good reviews, 
but I haven't read it yet..(it's supposed to be horror, and I'm 
_really_ nightmare prone)   Happy reading!
