A new Iain Banks novel is definitely of interest to our readers, regardless of whether the authors middle initial is on the cover (for those that don't know, under the name Iain M. Banks, he writes hard SF - and books without the M are literary fiction).
The Steep Approach to Garbadale is Bank's first mainstream work in nearly five years and is described as his "... most absorbing story since The Crow Road." A personal favourite author of mine, (I've been reading Banks's works for over twenty years) if you've only dipped into his genre work, a whole list of wonderful novels awaits you... why not start with this one?
