Edinburgh author Iain M. Banks
, creator of the post capitalist space faring society The Culture
and it's oddly named ships
, has long been the UKs top science fiction writer, but has never had more than a toehold in the US
(in part through lack of availability, in part due to lack of promotion and in part due to some pretty awful covers
. That could change: Matter
, his latest, has been heavily promoted in the US and sports a cover nearly identical to the UK edition. This week Orbit
are releasing US editions of the two earliest Culture novels, with the third following in July, which could mean a complete release of all the novels in the US in order. [more inside]

Angie was a marked woman
, paying her own ransom with a body none could resist. Someone
has spent an incredible amount of time and energy scanning in lesbian pulp fiction covers from the 50's and 60's. An interesting look into what was considered titillating 40 years ago.
