you might like Ray Bradbury - Something Wicked This Way Comes was apparently great, but I haven't read it. Farenheit 451 was also great.

For the 'sword and shield' stuff, I loved the Drangonlance series when I was a teenager - by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. I also loved David Eddings' books - The Belgariad and the Mallorean.

Other great novels that aren't too taxing:

Aldous Huxley, A Brave New World
George Orwell, Animal Farm
CS Lewis's Narnia series
Gabriel Garcia Marquez, One Hundred Years of Solitude
Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

You also might want to try short stories - easily digestible and of good quality:
Anything by Edgar Allan Poe
Anything by Issac Asimov, especially I, Robot
Thanks Trane..think Im gonna try one as soon as I get a library card

"Something Wicked this way comes" sounds interesting to me.
Forgot about CS Lewis, and Mary Shelley
I used to like Poe in school(many moons ago)
