Iain Banks

The author Iain Banks (aka Iain M Banks) died on Sunday 9th June of a metastasising cancer that originated in his gall bladder. He was 59.

With his death we have lost a witty, intelligent and very able writer of “mainstream” and science fiction as well as a defender of humanism, in all senses of that word. He was also a very nice man.
