Nighthawk_Andy- "Finally, doesn't anyone read Iain M Banks? He may not be quite on par with some of the formentioned authors in this post, but the guy has one hell of an imagination." I've read several of his books and really liked them. Just finished "Inversions" and that was excellent. "Excession" and "Use Of Weapons" were good. I plan on reading more of his novels in the future. Which one do you think is his best?
