    All Neil Gaiman's and P. K Dick books.
    Stephen King's The Dark Tower.
    "From time to time I demonstrate the inconceivable, or mock the innocent, or give truth to liars, or shred the poses of virtue.(...) Now I am silent; this is my mood." From Sundrun's Garden, Jack Vance.
    "As the Greeks have created the Olympus based upon their own image and resemblance, we have created Gotham City and Metropolis and all these galaxies so similar to the corporate world, manipulative, ruthless and well paid, that conceived them." Braulio Tavares.

      Ursula K. LeGuin - The Dispossessed - Brilliant and well worth a read.

      Thomas Pynchon - V. - Just plain brilliant!

      Terry Pratchett - Discworld novels - Great fun, all of them!

          Dan Simmons' Hyperion Cantos
          Larry Niven's Ringworld series
          Joe Haldeman's Camouflage (but, really anything of his)
          Vernor Vinge's Fire Upon the Deep, Deepness in the Sky, and (though I haven't read it but have it sitting on my shelf [even though I preordered it /facesmack\) the Children of the Sky, sequel to Fire Upon the Deep
          Peter F. Hamilton's Commonwealth Saga, though I only read Pandora's Star so far

              Anything by Iain Sinclair should do for starters! Does a rather decent stand-in as "Taffy" in Mike's Metatemporal Detective too!
