Re: Sci-fi book recommendations?

I saw Banks's 'transition' in the bookshop, looks pretty cool.

If you haven't read any Culture novels, let me throw a few Ship names at you (Ships have their own Minds (AIs) and are classed as citizens in their own right, and can so choose their own name):

Nervous Energy
Prosthetic Conscience
No More Mr Nice Guy

Gunboat Diplomat
Just Testing
What Are The Civilian Applications?
Fate Amenable To Change
Shoot Them Later


And some of their chracters are... out there.
