Re: Iain Banks 1954-2013

Just saw the news on Digital Spy a moment ago. It comes shockingly soon after his illness was announced; I think he had been expected to last for several more months.

He'll be sorely missed. The world of literature is now a less funny, insightful, erudite and humanistic place. His books, middle-initialled and otherwise, have always been a pleasure to read.
Time is the boss of me.
