Iain Banks has been interviewed by Derek Neale, Open University lecturer in Creative Writing, for the OU's OpenLearn website.
Here's the video recording of the interview (available via YouTube) which took place at the Cheltenham Literature Festival last year. Derek talks to Iain about various topics, including the digitisation of books, his writing process and the impact of world events on his work.
An audio recording of the interview is also available via audioboo.fm.
Many thanks indeed to David H (editor of Iain Banks fanzine The Banksonian) for the heads-up!
