    Of the Culture, there is the wonderful and heartbreaking novella "The State of the Art" in which a Culture ship, with the woman agent who appears a lot, Sma, comes to Earth circa our time.  And it is "Consider Phlebas".  

    I've read all Banks' SF novels and loved them all (although "Use of Weapons" is a little heavy)  but couldn't get into any of the mainstream ones I tried--a little too edgy or something.  "Player of Games" is a good intro--much more to it than you think at first.  "Look to Windward" is a good intro also.  

    He will be sorely missed.

    Don't bet your future on 97% of climate scientists being wrong. Take action on climate now!
