A Personal Statement from Iain Banks.. April 3rd, 2013 in.. I am officially Very Poorly.. After a couple of surgical procedures, I am gradually recovering from jaundice caused by a blocked bile duct, but that - it turns out - is the least of my problems.. I first thought something might be wrong when I developed a sore back in late January, but put this down to the fact I'd started writing at the beginning of the month and so was crouched over a keyboard all day.. When it hadn't gone away by mid-February, I went to my GP, who spotted that I had jaundice.. Blood tests, an ultrasound scan and then a CT scan revealed the full extent of the grisly truth by the start of March.. I have cancer.. It started in my gall bladder, has infected both lobes of my liver and probably also my pancreas and some lymph nodes, plus one tumour is massed around a group of major blood vessels in the same volume, effectively ruling out any chance of surgery to remove the tumours either in the short or long term.. The bottom line, now, I'm afraid, is that as a late stage gall bladder cancer patient, I'm expected to live for 'several months' and it’s extremely unlikely I'll live beyond a year.. So it looks like my latest novel, The Quarry, will be my last.. As a result, I've withdrawn from all planned public engagements and I've asked my partner Adele if she will do me the honour of becoming my widow (sorry - but we find ghoulish humour helps).. By the time this goes out we'll be married and on a short honeymoon.. We intend to spend however much quality time I have left seeing friends and relations and visiting places that have meant a lot to us.. Meanwhile my heroic publishers are doing all they can to bring the publication date of my new novel forward by as much as four months, to give me a better chance of being around when it hits the shelves.. There is a possibility that it might be worth undergoing a course of chemotherapy to extend the amount of time available.. However that is still something we're balancing the pros and cons of, and anyway it is out of the question until my jaundice has further and significantly, reduced.. Lastly, I'd like to add that from my GP onwards, the professionalism of the medics involved - and the speed with which the resources of the NHS in Scotland have been deployed - has been exemplary, and the standard of care deeply impressive.. We're all just sorry the outcome hasn't been more cheerful.. A website is being set up where friends, family and fans can leave messages for me and check on my progress.. It should be up and running during this week and a link to it will be here on my official website as soon as it’s ready.. Iain Banks.. - ENDS -..

    Descriptive info: Iain M Banks SFX Fannish Inquisition.. November 22nd, 2010 in.. You remember.. a while back.. we mentioned that UK Sci-Fi magazine.. SFX.. was looking for reader-submitted questions to put to Iain? Turns out the resulting interview was published in the October 20th issue of the magazine, and is available on the SFX website as well:.. Iain M Banks.. Fannish Inquisition, part one.. Fannish Inquisition, part two.. Iain M Banks talks to The View From Here.. November 5th, 2010 in.. Mike French, editor of literary magazine.. The View From Here.. has been in touch to say:.. "We interviewed Iain at the Luton Library Theatre before he went on stage, in a half-hour interview which turned out to be both amusing and insightful.. viewfromheremagazine.. com/2010/11/iain-m-banks-in-latest-issue-of-view.. ">full interview.. is only available in our printed and digital editions.. ".. Here's a taster question to whet your appetite:.. :.. Is there a grand plan for the Culture, are you taking it somewhere or just having fun with it?.. Iain M Banks.. : "No – and yeah.. it will go on until I stop having fun with it and then I will just sort of leave it to be.. There's no overall strategic plan and in a sense that is the plan, having no plan is the plan.. The plot of the Culture is not going to come to some huge climatic end, well unless I come up with an idea that can only work in those terms but I'll try not to.. "That is, the Culture just keeps on going: it's this society where by now you might have expected it to sublime, to retire from the normal matter base life of the galaxy and the universe and go off into this magical realm.. (Which I may have to deal with as I keep getting asked about it these days, so I’m going to have to explain what the hell it is.. ).. "But it's definitely not doing this, deliberately staying back and surfing the crest instead of going down the wave - it wants to keep on doing good works, it wants to be part of the normal life of the galaxy.. So it's deliberately not doing what it’s expected to do.. So that theme of continuance, of sticking around – like passiveness, almost bloody mindedness is why it can't just all suddenly come to a big crashing stop and I think eventually it will fade away, but it’s going to leave lots of echoes.. "That was one of the questions today during the Twitter thing which I had to put in quite concise terms: somebody said, will the Culture ever fall? And I said, it’s not going to fall but it will fade and that’s going to leave echoes everywhere.. (.. Mock evil laughter.. )"..

And it will not end until the Culture has gone to war with death itself.. Lededje Y'breq is one of the Intagliated, her marked body bearing witness to a family shame, her life belonging to a man whose lust for power is without limit.. Prepared to risk everything for her freedom, her release, when it comes, is at a price, and to put things right she will need the help of the Culture.. Benevolent, enlightened and almost infinitely resourceful though it may be, the Culture can only do so much for any individual.. With the assistance of one of its most powerful - and arguably deranged - warships, Lededje finds herself heading into a combat zone not even sure which side the Culture is really on.. A war - brutal, far-reaching – is already raging within the digital realms that store the souls of the dead, and it's about to erupt into reality.. It started in the realm of the Real and that is where it will end.. It will touch countless lives and affect entire civilizations, but at the centre of it all is a young woman whose need for revenge masks another motive altogether.. October 2010, folks..
