Very sad news

I’m not quite sure how to put this, because while it is terrible news for me and all his other fans, the news is obviously much, much worse for Iain and his family. Still, I was gutted to find out this morning that Iain (M) Banks has terminal cancer. You can read his personal statement here:

I have always loved Iain’s Science-Fiction novels, especially his Culture novels, and I can’t help but wish that he’ll defeat all the odds and recover from this, even if the chances seem very slim.

Can’t say much else really…
