ubergeeknz: Thought I'd resurrect this thread :)
Just finished the Commonwealth Saga (Peter F. Hamilton) on my Kindle - hard work at times, but the gripping fight scenes and epic finale made it totally worthwhile.
Now reading "Inversions" (Iain Banks) - love me a good Culture novel, and the way Banks uses various points of view, often widely separated, to humanize the story arc (if humanize is the right word for an alien, or sometimes computer mind, perspective...)
Love the culture series, am reading the hydrogen sonata now.
Does anyone have any other sci fi authors, not interested in fantasy?
