Surface Detail

The latest Iain M Banks science fiction novel “Surface Detail” is an incredible read – and I haven’t finished it yet. Having read three of the Culture series before I was anticipating more of the same head-spinning, stomach-churning inspiring stuff but this blockbuster takes the biscuit. Like tasting a decent single malt (and Mr Banks has written a great guide to finding The Perfect Dram, this is matter of great complexity, strength, satisfaction and imagination. It’s a book set in different times but at the same time, featuring human themes set against an alien landscape. A thrilling, entertaining but above all uplifting read. Please read it (I got it on request from our endangered wonderful library service).

Left with the use of my left arm/hand only, after a serious motor cycle accident in 2005, I am learning to adapt to life with a brachial plexus injury and have developed a style of playing guitar using open tunings. I love drawing, painting and generally messing around in a fairly loose fashion. Can't describe myself as an artist, but perhaps a doodler with intent.
