Do you listen to fantasy music? Most of the fantasy music I know is metal-based: Luca Turilli and Rhapsody (who sang with Christopher Lee), Blind Guardian (who did an album based on Tolkien's The Silmarillion).

Do you have a favourite fantasy song/album? Are there any big non-metal fantasist bands?

Hrm, how do you define fantasy music, though, as opposed to music that's just using fantastical elements?

S.J. Tucker's music. She has some based on books by Catherynne M. Valente, but pretty much anything she writes and sings is magical.

Seconding SJ Tucker! She and Catheynne M Valente are amazing together.

Aren't they just? "City of Marrow" came up on my iPod this morning and I was all "Squee!"

Palimpsest is definitely different (but then, all of Valente's work is very unique) and it isn't for everyone.

My favorites are the Orphan's Tales books: In the Night Garden and In the Cities of Coin and Spice. Incredible books, it was an experience to read them.

Valente's books. That's her profile on LJ, she's got all her books listed with links to where to buy. :) Have fun!

Aaaah. Yeah, if you don't make online purchases, or can't, then I can see how hard it would be to get her more obscure work. :/ Maybe you could make a request at your local bookstore? I don't know, worth a shot if you haven't tried it already.

I see from your profile you live in Australia. Is it an import thing? ::ponders:: If someone else bought them and sent them to you, would there be any problems getting the packages through to you?

Pfffft, that sucks. Good luck! If you need help, PM me. I'm always willing to help someone discover the magic of Valente. :)
