Besides what's already been mentioned, here's some not for free, not always SL4,
but I find them fun:
Lady of Mazes, sort-of sequel of Ventus (no need to read this first really).
Pandora's Star / Judas Unchained pair. It does have a SI, and mentioned the word
Ian M Banks & Damien Broderick of hereabouts have some stuff.
Oh, and don't forget the Golden Age trilogy from John C Wright.
Slipping into non-Singularity:
Some good action-oriented stuff by Neal Asher.
Collapsium & the Wellstone trilogy from McCarthy. I'm in the middle of this, no
SIs so far, but lots of fun programmable matter, neutronium, black holes, and
Scott Westerfeld's Risen Empire two-parter for some space battles, more
programmable matter, and immortality conspiracies.
Aristoi (been so long don't remember much of this, but that I liked it)
Cyberpunk dystopic stuff for when you really really have nothing else...
Stuff on my list to try:
Dread Empire's Fall series from Walter Jon Williams
Reality Dysfunction series from Hamilton
Geodesica : Ascent
Recursion, Capacity by Tony Ballantyne
Ring - Stephen Baxter
More Ian M. Banks likely
Not my fave, but maybe Pushing Ice and some stuff from Alastair Reynolds
