Waterstones Says

The fifth instalment of Banks’s seminal Culture series, Excession synthesises the wit and playfulness of the series with its phenomenal world-building and cosmological prowess. The epic tale of a mysterious interstellar artefact, Excession demonstrates Banks’s staggering narrative and imaginative abilities to perfection.

The fifth Culture book from the awesome imagination of Iain M. Banks, a modern master of science fiction.

Two and a half millennia ago, the artifact appeared in a remote corner of space, beside a trillion-year-old dying sun from a different universe. It was a perfect black-body sphere, and it did nothing. Then it disappeared.

Now it is back.

Praise for the Culture series:

'Epic in scope, ambitious in its ideas and absorbing in its execution' Independent on Sunday
