Iain Banks interviewed for The Socialist Review

The February 2008 issue of The Socialist Review carries an interview with Iain, conducted by Patrick Ward. As you’d anticipate, there’s plenty of political discussion, along with questions about both Matter and The Steep Approach to Garbadale and some thoughts on ‘The Culture as Utopia’.

Iain also talks about his current plans for the next book…

“I’m thinking about thinking about the next book. I’m going to start typing it in October. So I’m not thinking about it. I’m thinking about thinking about it. There’s a distinction I hope you appreciate.”

…just in case you were wondering.
