What free ebooks should I check out?

I'm going to be hiking in Japan for a week soon. The last time I did this was about eight years ago and I hauled a few large paperbacks along with me which I devoured in the first few days. It was far too much dead weight and took up too much space in my backpack.

This time around, I'm going to be borrowing a Sony ebook reader from a friend. Since many ebooks cost more than real books and there are a ton of classics I haven't read yet, I'm going to load it up with reading from Project Gutenberg and feedbooks.com.

So far I have selections from Mark Twain, Jules Verne, Nietzsche, Cory Doctorow, H.G. Wells, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Those are already be more than enough, but I want to have options!

What other free classics should I check out? I normally geek out on too much non-fiction, so I want some stuff with wonderful language, characters, and stories. Let me know if you have any ideas.

Pratchett? Mieville? Stewart & Cohen?
 Terry Pratchett? Awesome writer, that man.
Can't say I've read them. Bill Bryson? Michael Crichton?
Bryson's OK. Crichton I find full of errors.
I know, but he's fun for when you want to suspend reality and forget the rules. :D
 Flatland!!!! YES!
