The Gonji series is very Appendix N. A samurai comes to Eastern Europe to kill a sorcerer. Gets transported to crazy places and fights crazy monsters. The "fish out of water" vibe that Appendix N does so well is heavily evident...

The Horseclan Series by Robert Adams has the Appendix N vibe.

One could probably find many Warhammer Fantasy novels that also have that feel. Gotrek and Felix? Totally Appendix N!

I also like the Brak the Barbarian books by John Jakes:

The daemon cycle by Peter v. Brett.

The daemons own the world, the known world is tiny. Man doesn't really band together in this time of desperation.
