Iain Banks, 1954-2013

Iain Banks, author of bizarre literary novels and visionary science fiction, is dead at 59.

Barely weeks ago, Banks announced that he was a cancer patient and that his latest book would be his last. Yesterday, the Sunday Times published an interview with Banks, in which he discussed the disease's impact and how it took form as The Quarry, which will be released June 20.
