You could do worse than Kage Baker's "In the Garden of Iden." Futuristic time travel with a huge twist. Or "The Player of Games" by Iain Banks, set in a far futuristic society called The Culture. One of his first Culture books, and one of his best, in my opinion.

Slowly putting together a "replacement" forum at http://writerswriting.proboards.com.

It's still under construction, but come take a look.

The other day, I listened to a reading of Distance of the Moon by Italo Calvino, from his short story collection Cosmicomics. A beautiful, whimsical piece of science fantasy. I'm definitely going to seek out the full collection:

Here's the reading, if you're interested:

Other than that, check out some John Wyndham. I used to love his stuff.

The Thrawn Trilogy by Timothy Zhan takes place right after Return of the Jedi. It's a classic for Star Wars fans and some say is the best thing you can get for an Episode 7.
And Allegiance another Timothy Zhan work which I found really enjoyable because it was nice to see in the mind of a stormtrooper, how they operate and their attitudes regarding to the Empire.

Kenneth Oppel's Airborn is pretty awesome, it's fairly light reading. I loved it at the age of 14, and my dad loved it at the age of 45.
If you want something that's a little heavier reading (mindboggling would probably be the term) I recently read (and am pretty sure I enjoyed) Transition by Ian Banks. It's the kind of book that leaves your brain all tangled.

I’d like to recommend you one of my favourites, yet not so much well known. One can find buch of stories which will grab u right into the story, and u won't be able to stop reading nor to move out of the bed. Pretty much scary, as well as a little bit erotic, that's what everyone loves, isn't it? :) Oh well, the book is Cozy Chilling Bedtime Stories by Gibey.
