More Information
Iain Banks was born in Scotland on 16th February 1954 was educated in Stirling and after university travelled through Europe before taking a job with a steel company. He later became a solicitors clerk whilst trying to get his first novel published. His first efforts were rejected until he wrote Wasp Factory which was snapped up immediately. It caused quite a stir at the time with some public libraries even refusing to stock it. The author always had an enthusiasm for science fiction, suggestions of which appear in his early work. It was under the name Iain M Banks that the author entered the genre fully though. A best selling both respected and challenging he is a favourite amongst collectors, the first book being the most sought after.
