7) The Well of Lost Plots, by Jasper Fforde

This is the third of Fforde's series tracking the adventures of detective Thursday Next, in whose world the boundaries betwen literature and reality have become somewhat blurred and the Crimean war is still going on in 1985. To be honest not quite as good as the first two, The Eyre Affair and Lost in a Good Book, but fun nonetheless. Great line from the Emperor Zhark:
Just when I think I have the galaxy at my mercy, some hopelessly outnumbered young hothead destroys my insidious Death Machine using some hitherto undiscovered weakness. I'm suing the manufacturer after that last debacle.
