    Several are series, but the books are all standalone, like Pratchett and unlike Martin.

    Patrick O'Brian - Aubrey/Maturin British naval Napoleonic War. Not fantasy strictly speaking, but has some of the same appeal without the magic. The details are insane.

    Naomi Novik - O'Brian with Dragons.

    Neil Gaiman, but I assume you've already read him since you've read Pratchett.

    Lois Bujold. Vorkosian series (Space Opera), or Chalion (fantasy). Wonderful characters.

    Connie Willis. Doomsday Book. Hard-SF/Archeology.

    Iain Banks. Culture (Space Opera.)
