Iain Banks, RIP
Others have already tweeted this, so just to confirm … I am told by family friends that Iain Banks died this morning. RIP.

I wrote about him when he announced he had terminal cancer; what I wrote there about his work still stands, of course.
A sad day for science fiction and for literature; thoughts to his wife, family and friends.
