SURFACE DETAIL – Iain M. Banks (2011)

Surface DetailIt’s simple: if you like Banks’ Culture novels, you’ll like this one. It’s not the best Culture novel – that’s Excession – but it’s still excellent.

If you don’t know the Culture novels, don’t start here: start with The Player of Games, and work your way up in the order they’ve been released. Banks is a giant, and his highly imaginative Culture series is one of the best things that ever happened to Sci Fi, and his premature death one of the worst.
