Writer Iain Banks Terminally Ill


A bit of literary news for you today readers. From the Guardian:

Iain Banks Diagnosed With Gall Bladder Cancer

I thoroughly enjoyed Banks’ darkly funny novel, The Wasp Factory. I haven’t read any of his SF, but I like his example of being a writer who moves between genres fluidly.

It will be a great literary loss, but here’s to Mr. Banks and his family and friends. May the rest of his days be joyful.
