Iain Banks

Iain Banks was born in Dunfermline, Scotland on February 16, 1954 and died on June 9, 2013 in Kirkaldy, Scotland. Iain Banks achieved immense acclaim and success for his first novel, The Wasp Factory. It is an unusual story with a surprising twist which caught the imagination of many readers and won him a large audience. Banks followed the Wasp Factory with Walking on Glass, and The Bridge, a surreal novel about the Forth bridge, a car accident and a nightmare. In 1987, Iain Banks turned his attention to science fiction and published the first of his Culture novels Consider Phlebas. See a list of Iain M Banks Books

Book Review:

Two years after I killed Blyth I murdered my young brother, Paul for quite different and more fundamental reasons than I`d disposed of Blyth, and then a year after that I did for my young cousin Esmeralde, more or less on a whim. That`s my score to date. Three. I havn`t killed anybody for years, and I don`t intend to ever again.It was just a stage I was going through.`

Dead Air

Book Review:

A couple of ice cubes first, then the apple that really started it all. A loft apartment in London`s East End; cool but doomed, demolition and redevelopment slated for the following week. Ken Nott, devout contrarian leftish shockjock attending a midweek wedding lunch, starts dropping stuff off the roof towards the deserted car park a hundred feet below. Other guests join in and soon half the contents of the flat are following the fruit towards the pitted tarmac....just as mobiles start to ring, and the apartment`s remaining TV is turned on, because apparently a plane has crashed into the World Trade Centre...
