RIP Iain M. Banks

A fond farewell to Iain M. Banks, possibly the finest prose writer ever to grace the pages of science fiction. And also goodbye to his long term collaborator Iain Banks, who injected a much needed narrative drive and energy into mainstream literature. I wish I’d met them both.

    He died? Wow, I didn’t know. He was great 🙂

    A shock and a sad day for the SFF scene… though we already knew about his ill health since he wrote about it couple months back. This last year has seen three of my favourite writers passing away – Chinua Akebe, Harry Harrison and now Banks… 😦
