Ian M Banks-Sad sad news

I got told today that the author of the Culture novels is dying of cancer!
See:   Ian M Banks, cancer
 I was just shocked! I've only read one of his SF books but I know how highly he is regarded in SF circles. Thoughts go to his family at this awful time. Not even 60 and many who have met him have said what a genuinely nice guy he is! First we lose James Herbert, a favourite horror writer of mine, now this!
