Also almost finished working my way through Iain M Banks's Culture series, via audiobooks.
The Abominator-class warship "Falling Outside the Normal Moral Constraints" is perhaps the most aptly named craft I've encountered.
@djac I love his stuff. I often wondered how long it took him to dream up those ship names. "Grey Area" was pretty aptly named, I thought. If I ever write a Culture book I'm going to name a ship "I'll Be Right Behind You" :-)
If you haven't already, also check out "Iain Banks", that's the name he wrote non-scifi under. Some really good stuff; he's probably best known for "The Wasp Factory".
@kauer I'll have to check out some of his other work. The Wasp Factory looks a bit gruesome from some of the descriptions though!
