I agree that Frankenstein, Beowulf, Dante's Inferno, and Diary of Anne Frank should be on there. I also think The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer and Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon should be on there.

Have you seen any of the films he wrote/directed? Like Westworld or Looker?
They are pretty B sci-fi but you might find them interesting. Westworld has Yul Brynner which is funny because the only other role I have seen him in is The King and I.
Also, how is the novel Sphere? I have been thinking about reading it.
I have so many favorites but here are a few:.
-The Body of Christopher Creed (and The She)-Both by Carol Plum-Ucci
-The Picture of Dorian Gray -Oscar Wilde
-House of Leaves -Mark Z. Danielewski
-Fahrenheit 451 -Ray Bradbury
-Hamlet (I know its a play but I think it still counts)-Shakespeare
-Nymphomation -Jeff Noon
-All Roald Dahl's books (James and the Giant Peach, The BFG, Matilda, The Witches, etc)
-The Harry Potter series
-Philip K. Dick -Not sure which is my favorite, maybe Pay for the Printer or Ubik
I just started Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk. I haven't read any of his novels before but have had them recommended to me by several people. I am only on the 2nd or 3rd chapter but I am enjoying his writing style already.
