Iain Banks has passed away:-

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-22835047

I've not read any of his Culture novels, but thoroughly enjoyed "The Wasp Factory", "The Bridge", "Espedair St" and "The Crow Road", and somewhere around here I have "Complicity" waiting to be read.

Only 59. It's too soon to die, and he'll be missed.

This is awful news. I interviewed him very briefly a few years ago and as well as a great writer he was such an approachable, likeable, bloke. A great loss in many ways.

A very big loss. Luckily we have Kirsty Wark's last interview to remember him by from this year. RIP Iain Banks.
