Hee hee, you asked for it =). Of the ones Melissa already mentioned, I agree
that Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan series and Vernor Vinges books are
really great. I liked Brin's Startide Rising and Uplift War, as well, but
the later books in this series were not as good as these two.

Other ones that you might like are Sharon Lee and Steve Miller's Liaden
series which is really good space opera. The first three, which have been
unavailable for a long time, have just this year been republished as an
omnibus edition named Partners in Necessity. The fourth book in the series
is called Plan B, all of these are published by Meisha Merlin.

I also like Debra Doyle and James D. Macdonald's Mageworlds series (I think
five or six books by now, the latest was just published in hardcover, but
I'll wait for the paperback). The writing in these isn't IMHO not as good as
in the Lee/Miller series but they were very entertaining, especially for the
classical Star Wars -like atmosphere of them (before Episode One...).
