For starters: Barry Hughart's three novels featuring Master Li, and Number Ten Ox. Best described as "Stories of an ancient China that never was".
Michael Fenberg, editor of a small, eclectic newspaper in a rugged community in the Sierra Nevadas, is out to solve a series of grisly killings. He knows that a monster is committing the murders. What he doesn't know is which monster. And whichever one it is, why is the monster so interested in murdering the woman with whom he finds himself helplessly falling in love? John Boston's first novel is as hilarious as it is scarifying, a highly original whodunnit that turns into a whatdunnit and finally evolves into a which-what-dunnit.

The Gone-Away World by Nick Harkaway (imagine a world where fallout from an experimental weapon can cause anything imagined to happen. Think about it very carefully. You may now panic)
