Re: Who is K.J. Parker?
Well, Tom Holt it is then!

And K.J. Parker is a PUN. Superb!
What is the pun?

Holt took the name "Parker" from a pen company. It was the name of a pen. A pen name.

Re: Looking for Recommendations: Narrow Scope, Good Prose, and Magic
I've not read much '80s style high fantasy, so I have no idea. Is there anywhere I can read an excerpt?

Actually, there is an excerpt of Dragonsbane online thanks to Open Road Media, who recently republished it as an eBook! It's very good.

I love Lois McMaster Bujold's writing. Her Chalion series was focused and fascinating. Only two books, I beieve.

Fantastic choice! Since Mellifluous has already read it, perhaps the sequels? Paladin of Souls and The Hallowed Hunt also seem to fit the mould (though I've not read them myself, so I can't confirm as much.)
