A couple of favourites:

Dancers at the End of Time by Michael Moorcock. A trilogy about decadance and the redeeming power of true love. The characters have godlike powers that they use only to amuse each other, until Jherek Carnelian meets Amelia Underwood, a nice Christian married lady from 1896, and falls in love. Surreal and touching by turns.

Mission of Gravity by Hal Clement. Hard SF, set on a Jupiter-sized planet with a day of (IIRC) 36 minutes. The main character is a native who looks like a squashed centipede. I like him! Good adventure, too.
