British author Iain Banks (aka Iain M Banks) is very seriously ill and probably won't be with us for very much longer. Following James Herbert's untimely passing a few weeks ago, this has upset me a bit, probably because they are two writers that I grew up with and who between them penned some genuinely memorable stuff.

And war is peace and peace is war and less is more and yes is no
They want to tell you this, they want to tell you that, just hold your hat when the black wind blows

Everywhere I go I hear what's going on
And the more I hear the less I know
Everywhere I go I hear what's going on
And the more I hear the less I know
