MEDIA REVIEWS

Banks is a phenomenon: the wildly successful, fearlessly creative author of brilliant and disturbing non-genre novels, he's equally at home writing pure science fiction of a perculiarly gnarly energy and elegance - William Gibson

There is now no British SF writer to whose work I look forward with greater keenness - THE TIMES

Poetic, humourous, baffling, terrifying, sexy - the books of Iain M. Banks are all these things and more - NME
