Yesterday, Ian Banks, past away yesterday at 59. Bannk’s was the writer of the fantastic novel “The Wasp Factory” as well as many great Science Fiction novels, most notable the “Culture”-series. Ian Banks was a writer of great talent and his death was a true tragedy. No doubt he will be greatly missed.
