| Book Description: |
This collection of 12 new essays draws together prominent literary experts to explore the importance of Scottish writer Iain (M.) Banks, both his mainstream and science fiction work. The book considers Banks as an habitual border crosser who makes things fresh and new by subversive and transgressive strategies. The essays are divided into four thematic areas: the Scottish context, the geographies of his writing, the impact of genre, and a combined focus on gender, games and play.
