Six outstanding standalone fantasy novels

Christopher Golden and Tim Lebbon are the co-authors of Blood of the Four. At they tagged six outstanding standalone fantasy novels. One of Golden's picks:
Mythago Wood by Robert Holdstock

It’s probably cheating, because Holdstock went on to write numerous other novels that are tied to this one, but Mythago Wood reads very much as if those expansions and further explorations were additions. Second thoughts. He finished this one and decided he had more to say—at least that’s how I’ve always viewed it. A beautiful journey and a fantastical mystery, this is The Lost City of Z, with every acre of forest peeling back centuries of ancestral memory and digging at the roots of folklore. A classic.
