Iain Banks has terminal cancer.
What a great shame!Mr Banks is one of my all time favorite authors. My personal favorite is 'Against a dark background' which is one of the most immersive books that I have ever read. I must have read it a dozen times from cover to cover and it still seems as fresh as the first time. A definite recommendation to all of you interested in science fiction.The Wife lost her Mother to this awful disease last year age 60 and Iain is only 59. The sooner a cure is found the better, Just hope one is possible.All the best Iain.Cliff.
