Author Iain Banks Cancer Diagnosis
Sad News today...Scottish author Iain Banks new book, The Quarry, coming out this year, will be his last. Iain has just announced he has months to live. He is diagnosed with late stage gall bladder cancer. Read his announcement here. Read article about Iain in the Guardian here.
Banks wrote fiction under the name Iain Banks and science fiction under the name Iain M. Banks. I read The Crow Road a few years ago and enjoyed it immensely. It was also made into a film. Here is a link to a bibliography of Iain's work. The Quarry is set in Northumberland and will now be available in June!
