Of course, pretty much any of Daniel Pinkwater's books are wonderfully weird -- don't let the "young adult" label scare you off.

I'd also recommend anything by R. A. Lafferty. You pretty much have to take a fan's word on it, because there is absolutely no way to describe his writing. Harlan Ellison once affectionately dubbed him a "madman," and that's about right.
