RIP Iain Banks
I heard that Iain Banks had died yesterday. He has written many scifi novels but his none scifi novels were what I loved best. I read The Wasp factory back in the eighties not that long after it came out as a recommendation. It's not exactly a change you're life novel but I have read every Ian banks novel since. I don't think I could give him greater praise than to say that every time I went to a book shop I would look to see if there was anything new. There will be one last Iain Banks novel, which despite some strenuous effort just didn't get to the bookshops before he died. I am kind of saddened that there will be no more books by him as reading his novels have always been great experiences.
