R.I.P. Iain M. Banks


Not that it’s unexpected, but all signs point to Iain M. Banks having lost his battle with cancer this morning. I am, for the record, allowed to mourn his passing without conservative self-promoters like John Ziegler attacking me for falsely lionizing the recently deceased. Should he or any like-minded asshole try any such thing, I have no doubt he’ll feel the full force of the online equivalent of Special Circumstances.

I’ll write a Banks a proper send-off once I gather my thoughts, but for now, I’ll acknowledge we’ve lost a great one and leave it at that.
