io9 says 'Welcome to The Culture'

To mark the release of Matter, science fiction mega-blog io9 has posted a handy, print-out-and-keep guide to the Culture, including a synopsis / mini-review of each Culture novel to-date, plus a link to an essay that Iain wrote back in 1994 to explain a few things about the Culture, that was originally posted to the rec.arts.sf.written newsgroup by Ken MacLeod.

    Seems as though the link to the essay is invalid

    Apologies, Kenn, looks as though the essay's been taken down or moved. I've removed the link - thanks for pointing it out!
