Some good introductory string theory books that I know are

GSW

Polchinski

McMahon

Becker

What are the good books at a more advanced level? Are there any such books, or do I have to dig it out of the research papers? There is a set of books called "mirror symmetry" and "dirichlet branes and mirror symmetry" which treat string theory at a much more advanced level. They are good, written by mathematicians for mathematicians (still good material on various topics.) Are there any other books that people know of at the level of these books?
