Novels that appear prescient.

Tom Clancy's absurd Debt of Honor (1992) has a politically motivated suicider crashing an airliner into the capitol building. Hector Bywater's novel The Great Pacific War (1925) sort of kind of predicted December 7, 1941. Any other examples come to mind, novels presaging alarming events? Thanks in advance.

Seeking funny novels

A literary agent friend of mine says that publishers dislike publishing funny novels because "humor is subjective". Certainly I have stumped bookstore clerks by asking them to recommend a funny novel. Not "Humor", which includes Garfield the Cat, Dave Barry, and Jokes for the John, but honest to God novels, with characters and plots and such. I have a little list of authors and if anyone can add to it, I will be in her or his debt. [more inside]
