The novels of Iain M. Banks have forever changed the face of modern science fiction. With breathtaking imagination and extraordinary storytelling, they have secured his reputation as one of the most extraordinary and influential writers in the genre.

‘Banks is a phenomenon’
William Gibson

Count Sessine is about to die for the very last time . . .

Chief Scientist Gad­fium is about to receive the mysterious message she has been awaiting from the Plain of Sliding Stones . . .

Bascule the Teller, in search of an ant, is about to enter the chaos of the crypt . . .

This is the time of the encroachment and everything is about to change. Although the dimming sun still shines on the vast, towering walls of Serehfa Fastness, the end is close at hand. The King knows it, his closest advisers know it, and the crypt knows it too; so an emissary has been sent – an emissary who holds the key to all their futures.

Reviews

There is now no British SF writer to whose work I look forward with greater keenness
THE TIMES
Banks is a phenomenon: the wildly successful, fearlessly creative author of brilliant and disturbing non-genre novels, he's equally at home writing pure science fiction of a perculiarly gnarly energy and elegance
William Gibson
Poetic, humourous, baffling, terrifying, sexy - the books of Iain M. Banks are all these things and more
