    Novelist Iain Banks has died two months after announcing his cancer.

    RIP, one of the greatest modern writers in both science and regular fiction. He will be sorely missed.

    Terrible news, he was, and still is one of my favorite authors.

    Truly one of the best authors of our time, he will be missed by many fans of science fiction and fantasy.

    Nooooo!
    He still had many good books in him, and died much too young.

    You will be missed grandmaster, you will be missed.
    The world is a less colourful place now.
