What should be done MORE in Fantasy?
And for science and magic, Lawrence's Broken Empire books are good. He's a researcher, so science is second nature to him. His world is interesting.
I'd also recommend Howard Andrew Jones's The Desert of Souls if you're looking for Middle-Eastern based fantasy. It's set in Baghdad during the reign of Haroud El-Rashid, and it shows a more historically accurate view of the caliph's infamous vizier, Jaffar.
