Tiny is now 12. Go Tiny! He has celebrated this by spontaneously deciding that he is OK with long form narrative fiction (as opposed to Haynes manuals, WWII plane spotters guides and popular science books with cartoons in).

I waved the Martian under his nose again after he didn't fancy persevering with it a year ago, and he finished it in 36 hours, and he grabbed a collection of Stephen Baxter's Xeelee stories from a library display and devoured them too.

So what I want is big hard science fiction with gripping plots and big ridiculous spaceships, but without content that's unsuitable for a twelve year old who thought that the problem with Pacific Rim was that it had too much character developement. So the obvious choice of Iain M Banks is probably the wrong answer.

Any brilliant ideas?
