Iain Banks

Just been listening to Iain Banks, in a Q and A session on the
Unbound blog site.

He is a great science fiction writer and has found success in both the world of science fiction and the world of literary fiction (two genres normally divided by millions of light years of empty space). It is fascinating, both listening to his reading and, even more so, listening to the answers he gives to questions. You can hear his enthusiasm and his imagination – simply bursting with ideas.

I particularly liked the part, right at the end, where he says:

I do read science, but I simply dispense with it when it gets in the way of a good story ….. shameless, I know.
