The war raged across the galaxy. Billions had died, billions more were doomed. Moons, planets, the very stars themselves, faced destruction, cold-blooded, brutal, and worse, random. The Idirans fought for their Faith; the Culture for its moral right to exist. Principles were at stake. There could be no surrender.

Within the cosmic conflict, an individual crusade. Deep within a fabled labyrinth on a barren world, a Planet of the Dead proscribed to mortals, lay a fugitive Mind. Both the Culture and the Idirans sought it. It was the fate of Horza, the Changer, and his motley crew of unpredictable mercenaries, human and machine, actually to find it, and with it their own destruction.

Consider Phlebas - a space opera of stunning power and awesome imagination.

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 *

“Can't wait to start the next one!”

Having read most of Iain Banks other novels I thought I should have a go with his sci-fi. I have not really read much sci-fi and was actually a little nervous. I shouldn't have worried, I was glued almost from... More

“Epic, meaningful, and riddled with danger”

'Consider Phlebas' is the first of Iain M. Banks’ 'Culture' novels, a series of books set in the same conceptual universe yet not sequential or directly linked. It is set during the war between the... More

“A true space opera!”

This is the second book in this series that I've read (despite actually being the first in the series...oops) and I really enjoyed it. It was packed full of action which kept the story going well and lots of... More
