William | 2 comments I find myself with a lack of good space opera books to read. I would really appreciate some pointers to other books like the ones below.

I greatly enjoyed these books/series:
Into the Black: Odyssey One
Leviathan Wakes
Darth Plagueis
EVE: The Empyrean Age

I enjoyed:
Steel World
Altered Carbon

I love Battlestar Galatica and Firefly (the tv-shows), anything in the same style would be really nice.

Stephen Goldin (stephengoldin) | 114 comments In addition to the previous fine suggestions, I'd like to immodestly offer my own 10-book Agents of ISIS space opera series, starting with Book 1, Tsar Wars. This is a new version of my old Family d'Alembert series, but completely rewritten and updated for the 21st century (as explained in my blog).

Awesome list!!! Did you add them to our official Space Opera Fans Listopia yet? We've been trying to compile a SoF member-generated Listopia that will rank high on Google searches and stuff. Maybe you can add these to the Listopia and rank them?
