Iain M. Banks

Just announced here.  Expect link to be down for the near future.  Iain has been diagnosed with late stage gall bladder cancer, which means less time to live than he would like, or expect to have.  I'm feeling quite emotional about this as I write.

I can't say that I knew Iain well, drank at the bar with him at several British SF Eastercons, saw him on panels and giving talks and the like.  I really enjoy his Culture novels and what more is there to say?

BBC news here.  An interview here.
