The State Of The Art, Paperback / softback Book

The State Of The Art Paperback / softback

Part of the Culture series

Paperback / softback

Description

The first ever collection of Iain M. Banks's short fiction, this volume includes the acclaimed novella, The State of the Art.

This is a striking addition to the growing body of Culture lore, and adds definition and scale to the previous works by using the Earth of 1977 as contrast.

The other stories in the collection range from science fiction to horror, dark-coated fantasy to morality tale.

All bear the indefinable stamp of Iain Banks's staggering talent.
