With or Without the M

I’ve just watched the BBC’s documentary on the late Iain (M) Banks (Raw Spirit – only available until tomorrow evening). He published science fiction using his middle initial and his other works (rather inadequately described as “literary fiction”) without but in either guise he was a fine writer. Most of what I have read comes from the sci fi stable; I particularly enjoyed his “Culture” novels, exploring the world of a highly advanced race who still manage to encounter many challenges that are all too human.
