    I honestly don't know what the Culture would do in response. I DO know that hegemonizing swarms crop up with some regularity in their setting, both mechanical and biological, and that there are existing protocols for dealing with them.

    So let's just say that the 'Nids will be nomming in a nature preserve, or a galactic zoo, or they'll be outright exterminated.

    Player of Games, Use of Weapons, and Look to Windward are the best of the lot, which i would recommend unhesitatingly.

    Consider Phlebas is the irrelevant adventures of captain Changling McPoisonous.

    Excession has an interesting concept, but most of the book is from the point of view of godlike super-intelligences and the fact that the author is made of meat starts to show very quickly.

    Matter is basically a 700-page walking tour of the Culture universe. I'm alright with that, but if you insist on things happening or mattering, it might not be for you.

    Surface Detail intentionally tries to squick you out in places, and it references an earlier Culture novel.

    It rubs up against the Culture, but it's really from the perspective of the Other Guys. The vast majority of it takes place outside of Culture territory and with non-Culture players.

    It involves a Mind and Special Circumstances, though, so it's a Culture novel.

    If you don't get excited when you think of the Culture going to war with a worthy enemy, I feel bad for you.
    If you get excited by it as it's shown in Consider Phlebas, I envy you.

    IIRC he had an outline of Use of weapons penned down, but was afraid he wouldn't be able to sell it. So the idea of the culture was recycled for Consider Phlebas.... as the antagonists. At the time they weren't "The culture novels", just a book that happened to feature a bunch of crazy AI's and there human pets as a faction in a generic space war. This was because he thought that was the only way he could present a utopian society in a sci-fi adventure story.

    Eventually his friend convinced him to finish Use of Weapons (and simplify the plot so it could be read by humans, it was originally even more nonlinear) and from there the rest of the books took off.

    Interesting thing about Surface Detail: it's set after the point where Earth was openly contacted by the Culture, if you go through at look at the timeline of the series.

    I wonder how that went, given that IIRC they were rather split in their opinions of us when they visited in "The State of the Art".
