No More Culture Books left - what other SF is like Iain Banks?

was helpful, but I need something from a slightly different direction for my husband who is out of Culture books: the humanist angle is great, but really looking for thoughtful left-anarchist SF in particular, "upbeat but not saccharine."

Hard SF is better than soft, but both are okay - no SF/Fantasy blends like dragons or wizards, even high-tech ones. Bonus points for specifically syndicalist works, but I know that's asking a lot. Specifically, not socialist science fiction like China Mieville, or libertarian, but left- anarchist that doesn't turn into everything going badly.
