Thanks for the recommendations! I already had a taste of Abraham and Abercrombie, the rest I have not tried yet (but, judging from how much I like the former two, I assume the other three would work for me as well).
Also, about a Song of Ice and Fire... yeah, it really is about more than just the sex and bad words - these are just superficial. What Sanderson never does (while Martin revels in) is really delve deep into the darkness at the hearts of the characters. Even most of the "good guys" in AsoIaF have darker aspects than any Sanderson character I have seen (the evil in his books tends to be somewhat simplistic). I really don't think Sanderson is willing to go there. And, there is the matter of the writing style, that is incomparable between the two authors.
Also, come on guys, Martin can get it done. He doesn't need help.
The books (AT LEAST the first one, haven't read the rest) are surprisingly tame compared to the show when it comes to sex. Also, the book offers a deeper insight into the characters than the show, Tyrion's first appearance/POV-appearance in the book is when he's in the library.
