Yudkowsky's recommendationEdit

Books of future shockEdit

Mallory Ringess is a pilot of the lightships of Neverness, member of the Order of Mystic Mathematicians and Other Seekers of the Ineffable Flame, governed by the Lord Horologe and Master Timekeeper. The black, diamond-hulled ships are piloted through the manifold through the mappings and theorems of set theory. On Neverness the akashics and cetics and remembrancers and warrior-poets practice their professions. And it just keeps getting better.

For poetry on the galactic scale, you can't beat Neverness. (The next three books don't meet the amazingly high standards of Neverness, however. Be warned.)
