Fantasy with Non-European Sources

For a Philcon panel I'm moderating this weekend on fantasy from non-European sources, does anyone have suggestions? I already made notes on questions to bring up and made my own list, mostly of young adult fantasy (Goto, Okorafor, Pon, Farmer, Wein), but your collective brain is better, and some of you might have read more brand new books than I have. I do plan to bring up colonialism, institutional racism, and "what this book needs is a honky." I intend to focus mostly on books, but of the panelists, one is a source for anime/manga and another for gaming.

I particularly want fantasy by non-white authors, but suggestions of non-Euro fantasy by white authors will also be useful. I've looked at various compiled lists, but don't mind links to those, either, just in case I missed them.

Books you didn't think did a good job will be valuable for the panel as well.
