The Probability Broach has recently been turned into a graphic novel. You can read it online for free, here.

Smith wrote several sequels to The Probability Broach which are pretty good. too: The Venus Belt, The Gallatin Divergence, Tom Paine Maru, and The Nagasaki Vector are all worth reading.

Smith also wrote the novel Pallas, which I liked best of ALL his books. He won another Prometheus Award for it -- well deserved. He recently wrote a sequel to it called Ceres -- mediocre.

Another good one: Forge of the Elders.

If you like nonfiction too, Smith's Lever Action is an excellent collection of his essays.
