My favorite Tom Clancy is Red Storm Rising, I read it every decade or so.
For fun, check out Tim Dorsey, start with Orange Crush or something older (2002ish), doesn't really matter, they all star a lunatic serial killer and his loveable sidekick Coleman. They only prey on bad people and....its funny as shit. A casual example of one of his more tame murder weapons: the board game "Mouse Trap".
Battle Royale by Koushun Takami. I don't really get how this whole thing gets stolen and basically plagiarized so this western author can capitalize on the trilogy and movies....other than the fact that when this was ready to come out here, the US was dealing with Columbine.(Hunger Games)
I really enjoy modern Italian metaphysicists like Umberto Eco and Italo Calvino.
Anything by Thomas Pynchon (my fave).
