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

'Banks has created one of the most enduring and endearing visions of the future' Guardian

'Jam-packed with extraordinary invention' Scotsman
