Goodbye Iain

Well, not a surprise, but still a shock. Two months after his announcement that he had cancer, Iain Banks has passed away. I will miss him very much, his Culture novels are among my favourite science-fiction books.

Not much else I can say really.

Edited to add Neil Gaiman’s journal post about this. Hits you where it matters.
