But I'm really in the mood for some good space opera sci-fi lately.
Ian M. Banks the culture novels ofcourse

Edit: If you have no problem to veer a bit outside the Space Opera subgenre I could also recommend Grass by Sheri S. Tepper (classic) or if you want clever sci-fi with a fantasy veneer Celia Friedmans Very good Coldfire Trilogy

Been Reading the Highly entertaining Anansi Boys from Gaiman. I think I'll switch to some comics (I just got the Walking Dead Compendium 1) for a change of pace after I finish it… Although those Rivers of London from Aaronovich seem awfully enticing too… Choices choices…
