Iain Menzies Banks (Iain Menzies Banks) – writer, was born on February 16, 1954 in Scotland.
Writes as “realistic” works (under the name Iain Banks), and sci-fi (under the name of Iain M. Banks).
Banks’s science-fiction works are referred to as the space opera genre. They represent a cycle that takes place in a world where artificial intelligence has long surpassed the mind of homo sapiens in power, and intelligent starships and CPUs operate in his books side by side with members of intelligent races that evolved biologically. The world of Banks is almost a utopia: physical illnesses are defeated there, in principle one can live indefinitely, almost anywhere in the universe can be reached in a short time, having made a hyperspace jump (the speed of light has long ceased to be the limit), for people (more precisely, this is not quite people, since they do not originate from the Earth) built a lot of “dwellings” in space, for every taste; almost any desire of an intelligent being can be satisfied.
Problems in the society of abundance, described by Banks, nevertheless arise, for example, through interaction with hostile cultures (“Remember about Fleb”), or in a collision with phenomena from the “outside world” (“Excess”).
