“Officially Very Poorly”

Iain M Banks is dying.

I am shocked.

I have tremendously enjoyed reading his novels, becoming lost in his ideas and  imaginations, becoming inspired, becoming thoughtful. I was looking forward to his next novel, simply taking it for granted as we all just take tomorrow for granted. But now there never will be another one.

I feel sorry for all the future works which are now lost, and I am grateful for what we were allowed to have. I feel sorry for the man behind these ideas who comes across as an intelligent and humorous person.  I wish him peace in his final months.

As someone else said: Glanding Grief now.
