Typical Iain Banks when talking about his terminal cancer diagnosis:

I just took it as bad luck, basically. It did strike me almost immediately, my atheist sort of thing kicked in and I thought ha, if I was a God-botherer, I'd be thinking, why me God? What have I done to deserve this? And I thought at least I'm free of that, at least I can simply treat it as bad luck and get on with it.
I haven't read his earlier books in years and it's high time I did. I will start by revisiting The Wasp Factory and drink a toast to the man with a nice single malt.

I wrote on his website guest book the day before he died. Kiss of death me.

I've only read his sci-fi books, read most of them several times. Mind blowing stuff, I'm really sad to think he won't be around to write any more.
