    Will be interesting to see how your list changes over time! I’ve only read 6 of these.

  2. I’ve been trying to start “Excession” for a few months now, but I know I will need more concentration than I can afford right now to enjoy it. But I see that many of my own favorite books are in your list 🙂

    • I like Excession so much because the protagonists are all Ships. I would have liked another few Culture novels that focussed on Ships, since they are so awesom & funny at the same time, but sadly Banks died.

    • Btw, I think it’s a pretty standard, fairly classic SF favorite list, featuring the usual suspects like Dune & Foundation, so I guess (a big) overlap with other people’s lists is to be expected. Not that that’s a problem…
