In praise of Mr Iain Banks and Mr Iain M Banks

With the very sad news that the great Scottish writer has only months to live after being diagnosed with inoperable cancer, you could pay no better tribute than to pick up an Iain Banks book today. Or indeed an Iain M Banks book.

Sergeant Turner and Sergeant Turner are big fans of the great man.

All my love to Mr Banks and his family.

    Sad news indeed. For years (indeed probably until listening to the Hot Fuzz commentary) I thought there were actually two Iain Banks, but then no one tells me nuffin.

    I’ve always been tickled by the way one reads Iain Banks while the other reads Iain M. Banks.
