Iain Banks came to controversial public notice with the publication of his first novel, The Wasp Factory, in 1984. Consider Phlebas, his first science fiction novel, was published under the name Iain M. Banks in 1987. He is now widely acclaimed as one of the most powerful, innovative and exciting writers of his generation.Review:
At last SF as it should be written!... If you aren't as yet familiar with these works I urge you to become so at your earliest opportunity. * CRITICAL WAVE * To say that Banks is Britain's best writer of science fiction would be to understate the case. He's simply one of our best novelists, whatever the genre. Read him * BOOK PEOPLE * In many ways his best yet... rich, vivid and great fun. * VECTOR * There is now no British SF writer to whose work I look forward with greater keenness * THE TIMES *
