what should I read next?

At this handy-dandy site, you can enter a book that you like and you'll receive a handful of recommendations. I experimented with my most recent favorite book - David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas - and was pointed in some interesting directions. The range and quirkiness of these titles are quite impressive.

Wild Seed - Octavia Butler
Divided Kingdom - Rupert Thomson
Sex Crimes of the Futcher - Billy Childish
The Invention of Solitude - Paul Auster
Cherry - Matt Thorne
Year 501: The Conquest Continues - Noam Chomsky
Idz Kochaj - Tomak Tryzna
The Living Room of the Dead - Eric Stone
A Werewolf Problem in Central Russia and Other Stories - Victor Pelevin, Andrew Bromfield
The Box Man - Kobo Abe
