Okay, last one: the stories of Robert Aickman. Oftentimes not overtly horror, his writing is exquisitely strange. My favourites are "The Inner Room" (who doesn't like a secret room inside a dollhouse?) and "Into the Wood" (insomniacs wandering through a Swedish forest, anyone?).

Also, anyone a fan of Rod Serling's The Twilight Zone and Night Gallery? When I was little, my dad used to tell a wicked rendition of "The Hand of Borgus Weems" in which a McDonald's employee loses control of his hand after accidentally dipping it into a fry vat.
