Lately I've been craving weird stuff to read.
I'm currently reading Blake Butler's Sky Saw:
It's like a mash-up of JG Ballard and William S Burroughs.

I'm also going to make myself read Maldoror:

Weirdness recommendations welcome!

I would say my current read of Mark Danielewski's House Of Leaves (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Leaves) falls under this category. After reading an entire chapter that required bouncing between footnotes that reference earlier footnotes that then reference footnotes carved out of the center sectioning of the book (some of which are in mirrored font), I'm convinced this is unlike any other reading experience I've ever had. This next section has maybe a single sentence or sentence fragment placed per every page.

James Havoc, who was really James Williamson, and is somewhat of a controversial figure, but damn. Satanskin. Don't get much weirder. Damn.

And Mark Leyner.
