I also really like Alistair Reynolds (and Blade Runner, Hyperion and Battlestar Galactica incidentally) and would like to find some more authors that have a similar scope and theme to their works. I came to Reynolds from Iain M Banks, who I think shares the gigantic space opera stage pretty closely with Reynolds, but need someone new to read. Are Neal Asher and Richard Morgan similar in style? I've come across Asher books before though haven't yet tried any, and haven't heard of Richarrd Morgan before. Looking for proper future tech, universe-sized science fiction here...
