I miss you, wor kid.

Vertigo, Iain is a really lovely guy. As recently as this February (six weeks ago) we were exchanging emails and discussing meeting up next year for a drink or two. Now...Terribly sad and it doesn't sound like there is really any chance of recovery. If there's one author I'd like to have met and spent time talking to it's Iain Banks. He will be sadly missed by me.
There's website that has been set up:Horrible news. Banks is one of my favorite SF writers, and from everything I've heard, a very kind and thoughtful person as well. I hope there is some hope, and if not, then I hope he is comfortable and knows how much we fans appreciate what he's done for us over the years.
