    As much as I'd love to see this done right, I'm concerned it'd just be dumbed down and messed up.

    I just re-read CP as part of my annual re-reading of his entire catalog and I was thinking of how...

    Aha! So it was 2001 for me! I remember Ken MacLeod being there at the reading too!
    I still have the travel diary that Iain signed afterwards, while I stammered out an awkward "thanks for writing...

    Was Iain Banks present at the 2001 Edinburgh Book Festival? or was it 2002? (or both)

    Civilization: Beyond Earth

    Can't help but think that Mr Bank's would've absolutely loved this!

    Makes me a little sad, but at the same time, I'll look forward to the game, and...

    *POSSIBLE SPOILERS*

    I'm currently re-re-re-reading 'The Bridge', it's been a few years since I've last read it, so my terrible memory has had ample time to forget most of the details, aside from a...

    Hmm, that raises the question of; 'what would be worse / more invasive; Displacing folks from one place to another without their permission, or violating their minds without permission'?

    I considered Storage too, but I thought that entailed Mind State scanning before hand, and so thought it was a bit more of an involved process?
    I wasn't sure how that would work without people...

    GSV Dreaming

    Hello all,

    For a while now I've had a fantasy about what could happen if The Culture existed and finally made Contact.

    I like to try and think about how that might actually go down, step by...

    I really enjoyed 'Against a Dark Background', I don't tend to over-analyze books, just enjoy them for what they are.

    Is there a record anywhere of Mr Banks reading 'A Few Notes on The Culture' out loud?

    I'm not sure if I'm ready to comment properly on 'The Quarry' yet either.

    I'm reading it right now, it's going all too quickly (I'm perhaps two thirds of the way through, it's hard to put down).

    Welcome speedingslug, hope you find some interesting reads here. For sure give the non-sci fi books a go, they are all well worth it.
    I'd personally recommend 'The Bridge' at the very least.
