"Prometheus Rising" by Robert Anton Wilson will blow your mind. The past, present and future of human consciousness and society, incorporating Western
Occultism, Eastern and Western religion,Timothy Leary, Alfred Korzybsky, GI Gurdjieff, Aleister Crowley, Biology, Quantum physics and more. Good stuff
that will change your way of thinking forever. Thoroughly readable, too. Also by Wilson: "The Illuminatus Trilogy" and "The Schrodinger's Cat trilogy"
"VALIS", "The Divine Invasion", and "The Man in the High Castle" by Philip K Dick.
Literary caliber science fiction. Very moody.
"The Crying of Lot 49" by Thomas Pynchon. Conspiracy/synchronicity/hippies/weirdness a la one of the more respected novelists of the second half of
the 20th Century
"The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" by Robert Heinlein.
Futuristic revolution 101
"Confederacy of Dunces" by John Kennedy Toole .1 of the funniest books you will ever read.
Could go on and on, but I'll stop there.
