Fuck Cancer–Iain Banks reveals he has terminal cancer

Isn’t toying with the life of Jay Lake enough, o God of Cancer? You want another high class SF author as a meat puppet, too?
Good grief. Today sucks.
Disclaimer: I’ve only read two Banks novels, Inversions (which I did not like) and Transitions (which did not blow me away, but had some neat ideas). Clearly I need to read more.
