Announcement here.

I keep wanting to make a grim joke about Culture ship names, but all my attempts are lame.

Crap.

Iain has written some of my favorite books of all time. I haven't read much of his interviews, but he always seemed like a really cool bloke to me.

Hopefully his last months will be joyous and full of life.

Dang. He's definitely one of the best. All the best to him and his family.
