I've just recently discovered that Iain M. Banks writes very, very good space opera. It's almost spaceship porn. Years ago I'd read Player of Games but I don't remember being that thrilled by it. I must have thought it good enough to buy other Iain Banks books over the years but for some reason I never read them.
That changed last week and under advice from a forum I started reading Excession. Wow. Just my cup of tea. A great plot and loads of spaceship porn. I most certainly have plans to read more now and have copies of the ones I own queued up on my Iliad.
I'm halfway through reading my Flashman books and I'm also halfway through reading Stephen King's rather excellent Dark Tower series.
Sucker bet (a thought experiment)
