    After discovering the Vorkosigan Saga and rereading The Forever War I'm trying to find more Science Fiction novels that combine exciting action with smart/smartly executed story telling. Now to clear things up, by "action" I don't necessarily mean Military Sci-Fi(although those shouldn't be excluded) I'd like more variety like cyberpunk or present based science fiction.

    I've really been enjoying The Lost Fleet Series by Jack Campbell, though I'm also a fan of indie authors, and always recommend the Dancer Series by K. M. Tolan as well.

    Starts slow, but has a climax ( that i just finished) that kept me up till 11:00!
    Best ending ever. Trains, battle scenes, and a giant spider thing...
