The Player of Games
His 'Culture' series of books - loosely set within the pan galactic humanoid society of the same name - are excellent and really stretch the imagination. Each of the Culture stories stand alone so you can read them in any order and without any prior knowledge, which I think makes these stories very accessible.
I'm reading Player of Games at the moment and I've already dug out several other titles and lined them up to read after this. I still have plenty of history books to get through (the pile is always growing), but for now I'm happy to let my mind wander for a few thousand light years.
