I saw mention of Stephen King's The Stand and the Dark Tower books, but I think The Talisman, written with Peter Straub, is easily classified as fantasy, and is much more bound to the U.S. than the Dark Tower is. (All right, technically, it was drawn in to the Dark Tower universe, but you know what I mean.)

Perhaps it's just because Lenny Henry read the audio book, but I was sure that Anansi Boys was set primarily in Britain, with the final action in the Caribbean.

It might be more horror (though I think Clive deserves his own category of "fucked up fantasy") but Barker's Coldheart Canyon: A Hollywood Ghost Story and The Great and Secret Show are set unequivocally in America.
