Excellent books that should be read between 5 and 23 times.

When you've read them 23 times, start over.

J.R.R. Tolkien.
Especially The lord of the Rings and the Hobbit.
The Silmarillion, Book of Lost Tales I & II, Unfinished Tales,
Smith of Woodcotton Major, Farmer Giles of Ham and whatever assorted poems are pretty cool also.
There are some other scholarly works out there, but they are harder to mull through, and are heavily talked about, rather than just the words of the man.

Tolkien is a excellent author.  I would read any of his words.

Lewis Carroll (link to a complete works page.  excellent, if I do say so myself)
Alice in Wonderland
Through the Looking-Glass
Sylvie and Bruno & Sylvie and Bruno Concluded
The Hunting of the Snark
Phantasmagoria
And any of his various poems.
If he wrote it, it kicks ass by default. In here are the secret mysteries of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Maybe not.

This man could weave a tale.  Sylvie and Bruno is his masterpiece.   all except Phantasmagoria available here.

Douglas Adams
The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy Trilogy. All five books.
Dirk Gently's Holistic Dective Agency & Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul
Last Chance to See

the best books in the WSGMM.

 

Robert Anton Wilson

The Illuminatus! Trilogy (with Robert Shea)

The Schrodinger Cat Trilogy

Masks of the Illuminati

The Historical Illuminati

Coincidance

For happy Wilson weirdness try these on for size.  Just open the Coincidance book a couple of times. 

No one knows what'll happen if you read it all the way through.   The Illuminatus! Trilogy rocks in a boulder sort of way.

 

The Principia Discordia - How I Found the Goddess and What I Did to her When I Found Her

fnord

 

Stranger in a Strange Land

Heinlien

it is good to grok this book..  it will change the way you look at the world..and maybe the way the world looks at you..  (it will take that cat off of it's head so it can look you in the eye without having it's ear bitten off)

 

Poppy Z. Brite

one weird chick.  Haven't read wormwood (her short story book).   You should only read these if you like gothic horror.

i'm typicially not a horror fan, but she's such a good writer.   

Lost Souls

Drawing Blood

Esquisite Corpse

Wormwood

 

L. Ron Hubbard

This man wrote a book called Dianetics and is the founder of Scientology.

please don't read that book or join that cult, however he did write some good books.

Mission Earth Decalogy - awesome satire

Battlefield Earth - I haven't read this, but it's on the list

 

David Eddings

The Belgariad

The Mallorean

Belgarath the Sorcerer

The Elenium

The Timuli

 

Ursula K. LeGuin

she's written other stuff, a lo of other stuff, but I haven't read any of it.

[the earthsea trilogy]

a wizard of eathsea

the tombs of atuan

the farthest shore

timuli

 

Harry Harrison

Bill the Galactic Hero - there are 5 or 6 books in this set, but have seperate plots, the only real thread is

    which appendage came from what animal.  something..funny as hell, regardless.

The Stainless Steel Rat - there are more of these books than I can...well actually I could count them.  if I had them all

 

Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman

The Rose of the Prophet Trilogy

They've written a lot more, but of what i've read, this is the best.
