Just two months after announcing that he was suffering from terminal cancer of the gall bladder, Iain Banks has died aged just 59. The Scottish author of works such as ‘The Wasp Factory‘ and ‘The Crow Road‘ sadly didn’t live long enough to see his last work ‘The Quarry’ on the book shelves, despite his publishers bringing the publication date forward to June 20.

Scotland has lost a great writer. R.I.P
