Born in Fife in 1954, Iain M Banks is one of the UK's most acclaimed writers of science fiction. Having already carved out a reputation as a literary writer with novels such as The Wasp Factory and Walking on Glass, his first SF novel, Consider Phlebas, was published in 1987.

Since then the Culture series has gone from strength to strength, featuring a number of seminal titles such as Use of Weapons, Feersum Endjinn and Matter. His most recent novel, Surface Detail, was released in hardback in 2010.
