Too bad the guy was only thirty eight - just two years older, he'd have been worth three times the points...

And which would be even more likely to have chainsaws and flamethrowers not usually found in the sports of today?

Rapid Offensive Unit Xenophobe will no doubt be pleased

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.
