Asimov's "Foundation" trilogy.

The second "Foundation" trilogy by Benford, Bear and Brin.

[A major second for Brin, his work is very well written. I'm also very happy to say that after corresponding with him, he is equally nice to exchange emails with.]

"The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" by Heinlein.

Works by Edmond Hamilton, for some early examples.

"The Illustrated Man" by Ray Bradbury

(more a fantasy style, but still good)

Some fantasy authors who rate in this discussion:

"The House on the Borderland"
William Hope Hodgeson

"The City of the Singing Flame"
Clark Ashton Smith

"Golden Apples of the Sun"
Ray Bradbury

"Fahrenheit 451"
Ray Bradbury

These are good starting places.
