Excession by Iain M. Banks. I'm working my way through his Culture series (soft sci-fi centered around a post-scarcity galactic civilization, though the stories themselves take place mostly on the outskirts of it), and liked the first few, but this one is kind of meh so far. It's still getting the main characters together for some kind of secret mission that the reader hasn't been let in on yet.

Saga by Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples. A friend loaned it to me and it's a pretty good sci-fantasy graphic novel about star-crossed lovers running from a civil war.

I just finished Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut. His shtick seems to be portraying humanity in a funny but tragic way. This one was about a writer researching a story after the fact about a fictional scientist instrumental in making the atomic bomb during WWII.
