Iain Banks has terminal cancer

The Wasp Factory may have been one of the weirder books I have read, but am sad to hear that it’s author Iain Banks, one of Scotland’s best known writers, has announced that he is dying of cancer. He has less than a year to live. Wishing him and his new wife Adele the best that is possible in the circumstances.
