Best-selling Scottish author Iain Banks has died aged 59:

He was one of my favourite authors.

Use of Weapons is one of the best books I've ever read. He will be missed.

Sad news. 59 is no age and it seems no time since he announced he had cancer.

I also found "Use of Weapons" to be a fantastic book. Sad news.
