Abstract

This collection of 12 new essays brings together prominent literary experts to explore the importance of Scottish writer Iain (M.) Banks, both his mainstream and science fiction work. It considers Banks as a habitual border crosser who makes things fresh and new by subversive and transgressive strategies. The essays are divided into four thematic areas—the Scottish context, the geographies of his writing, the impact of genre and a combined focus on gender, games and play—and will be of particular interest to scholars of contemporary literature, Scottish literature and science fiction.
