I really like stuff from Neal Stephenson and recently enjoyed Perido Street Station by China Mieville a lot, but those aren't exactly light reading. You have to be able to stomach a lot of infodumps that don't really go anywhere.

I've also been getting into Cory Doctorow a lot. His stuff is a lot less dense and the themes he explores will often be of interest to the people here.

I'm also catching up on Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, which comes highly recommended. It's lighthearted fantasy that still manages to talk about Important Stuff, such as morality, power, inequality, etc.
