Re: Iain Banks 1954-2013

DAMN. DAMN. CRAP. HELL. DAMN.

I found this online last night...it was made in 2004, and it's VERY well done. Apparently there were two more, by they have vanished from the interwebs unfortunately (I'd *really* like to see them if they still exist!) We really need a Culture-based movie...

Re: Iain Banks 1954-2013

Sad news indeed. He wrote fun, intelligent space opera of an interesting utopian future. My favourite was Consider Phlebas, but all his books both sf and non-sf were worth reading.

Great novelists have a habit of dying comparatively young from their 30s to early 70s (Ian Fleming, HP Lovecraft, Isaac Asimov, Robert E. Howard, and Michael Crichton most notably - most recently Iain (M) Banks - and Terry Pratchett now well on his way out way before 80, etc etc etc).

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, DAMMIT!!

Just heard (been away). The Hydrogen Sonata is a great novel, everyone here should read it, brilliant sci-fi. We've lost one of the greats, guys. We should have had more. Too soon, too soon.

And...

FUCK CANCER!
FUCK CANCER!

Yeah, I'd hoped for many decent "M" novels for many more years to come as well.
