RIP - Iain Banks

    Iain Banks (aka Iain M. Banks) passed away on 09 June, after a short battle against gall-bladder cancer, and at the all-too-early age of 59.  He was a top-tier contemporary Science Fiction writer.

    I've read two of his books - The Player of Games and Against A Dark Background, and two more of his books are on my TBR shelf.  His world-building was fantastic and there was a flair to his writing.  He will be missed.
