Oh I just reminded myself I have "Honey for a Child's Heart" I'll check in there too.

Here are a few classic suggestions, but your son might have read all of these already:
Science fiction--Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
Fantasy--The Belgariad (Pawn of Prophecy is the first one) by David Eddings
The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury

Also how about The Harper Hall trilogy of the Pern series by Anne McCaffrey? Not all of the Pern books are age appropriate but those are intended for the slightly younger set.
Other authors to explore (if you/he haven't already): Madeline L'Engle, Ursula LeGuin, Orson Scott Card, Issac Asimov, James Blish, Kurt Vonnegut (specifically, Galapagos, HG Wells. There are enough to get you started, anyway. Hope this helps!
One note: The Extraordinary Adventures of Alfred Kropp was *terrible* my 12 year old daughter and I both hated it.
