Quick update – a few Banks-esque links

First up, we’ve just added a couple of links to reviews of The Steep Approach to Garbadale to the reviews page.

Dave H sent us a link to a Guardian podcast of the recent discussion panel on The Wasp Factory that was chaired by John Mullan.

On the subject of The Wasp Factory, there’s a lengthy analysis-piece over at a blog called The Anatomy Lesson, which probably deserves a few comments.

Readers might also be interested in visiting Jon’s Soap Box, where you can read (and discuss) a comparison of the world-building techniques of Iain Banks and William Gibson.

And blogger Cobb ponders The Sybaritic Side of The Culture.
