Fannish Inquisition Iain M Banks

We want your questions to put to the best selling author

Next week SFX is leaving the warm embrace of picturesque Bath and taking a trip to the Big Smoke for a chat with one of the most popular science fiction authors of our generation – Iain M Banks. Best known in SF circles (he also writes mainstream fiction sans middle initial) for the Culture series – the latest of which, Surface Detail , comes out this October – Banks is a world builder and conducts epic space operas in a way no author working today come close to.

And we want your questions to put to the man himself for the next Fannish Inquisition to feature in a future issue of SFX. It’s a rare opportunity to pick the brains of one of fiction’s brightest talents so don’t miss out! Post your questions in the comment box below or email us at by Tuesday 15 June to be in with a chance.

Jordan is the Community Editor at SFX and Total Film. When he isn't watching movies or sci-fi shows of questionable quality he's probably shooting men in space or counting down the days till the next Zelda comes out.
