Anything by Terry Pratchett is good for a laugh.
An old favorite of mine (which I haven't read in YEARS, so my memory may be painting an overly-kind picture) was "Villains by Necessity" by Eve Forward. Fun take on the idea of the "bad guys" saving the world from the "good guys".
The View from the Mirror by Ian Irvine. It will rock your world. One of the most amazing fantasy series I've ever had the privilege to come across. The first chapter alone has more emotion and epicness than most whole trilogies.

I have like 10 zillion Terry Pratchett books at home I've yet to touch. So much to read, so little time. :(
Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks.
Lord of the Rings by Tolkien.

I recommend starting with "The Zombie Survival Guide", both by Max Brooks. It will get you into the right frame of mind, and familiar with the general "rules" of zombies in that setting.
Both books will have you trying desperately not to think about certain scenes too much when you're trying to sleep at night, too. I consider that a selling point in any horror piece!
Into fantasy fiction?
You could jump into the Legacy of Drizzt. Hit up your local library and grab "The Crystal Shard."
You can also try some Warcraft novels. Christie Golden is always good, but my personal favorite is "The Last Guardian" by Jeff Grubb.
Speaking of Jeff, a lot of his work is great. His Magic: the Gathering novels were particularly fantastic. It is kinda hard to find, but start with "The Gathering Dark".
And everyday is a great day to start reading some Tolkien!
You owe it to yourself to start, then. Pratchett books (Discworld in particular) go quickly. Almost too quickly, I find, like a really good meal that you dig into, only to discover your plate is empty before you know it.
