transgressive, psychedelic horror, post-apocalyptic, nihilistic, and existential literature reccomendations would be muchly appreciated. books or poetry. just need a break from dry research.

Standard response; Ligotti (Teatro Grotesco, My Work Is Not Yet Done, etc), House of Cards by Daniel Whatshisnameski, could try Cyclonopedia but that may be a bit too much like research to read.

Lol It's House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
But agreed that is a fantastic book
You also might enjoy Brian Lumley's Necroscope series, weird crazy psychic thriller turned into demonic-Vampire horror, it's great.
If you want something REALLY weird, check out Liminal States by Zack Parsons, a description wouldn't do it justice

Shit yeah sorry that's what I meant. I was too distracted trying to remember what the author's name was.

The Other Side by Alfred Kubin
I love it, it's an example of early surrealism, and is the only written work of Kubin, who was actually a famous visual artist in his time.

Of course, that's really more beautiful than scary. If you want something disturbing and psychedelic, The Wild Boys by William S. Burroughs is the most disturbing book I've ever read. For something also extremely disturbing, but completely realistic, there's Last Exit to Brooklyn by Hubert Selby, Jr.

-The Foundation Pit
Maybe the darkest novel ever written.
-Anything by William Gaddis (esp. J R) and most things by Thomas Pynchon
hard to go wrong.
The Book of Disquiet
Mostly just the well-written journal of a sad loner
-The Third Policeman
IMO this one is very funny, but at least one person I lent it to didn't get it at all; YMMV. If you like this bizarre distinctly Irish lit and are up to a challenge, consider Beckett's Trilogoy.
-Petersburg
one of Nabokov's three "best books of the 20th century"; s'pretty good. From my sub-fluent awareness of Russian, this was probably better in the original, But it's still pretty great. You may be more drawn to his childhood/coming-of-age novel, Kotiv Letaev ("Flying Kitten"), which revolves around a curious little boy and can get a tad experimental with all the vivid imagination and how strongly it defines descriptions of events.
-Today I Wrote Nothing
Daniil Kharms compilation (the translation at least; can't say what it is in Russian). Not incredibly heavy as the others on my recs list, but it's fun and slots well enough into your preferences.
-White Noise
Can't speak for DeLillo's other stuff as I've not read it. WN is a solid novel that epitomizes American postmodernism without requiring 5-10 minutes to read a page like some others might.
-Borges's short stories, on the chance you haven't read them yet
eeeee
