Ever since I read Iain M. Banks' The Algebraist, about creatures who live on gas giant planets, I have dreamt of gas giant cities. Luckily, the amazing site ConceptArt.org issued a challenge a couple of years ago to design one.

If you like that then you'd love the Saga of Seven Suns series by Kevin J Anderson. In his novels there's an entire civilization that lives deep inside most gas giants the galaxy over.

Though not particularly deep, I still enjoyed the novels for the over the top space operas that they were.
