What American Fantasy? Sheesh -- don't you people read?

What about most of H.P. Lovecraft's ouevre? Or do you draw a line distinguishing fantasy from fantastic horror? What about Edgar Allen Poe and Ambrose Bierce?

Robert E. Howard set many of his stories in the U.S.

If you're looking for lighter-veined stuff, try L. Sprague de Camp's early works. There are lots of others from the pulps of the thirties through the seventies -- look in back issues of the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. Most of the authors aren't household names, but there are certainly fantasy stories set in the US.
