Born in Fife in 1954, Iain M Banks is one of the UK's most acclaimed writers of science fiction. Having already carved out a great reputation as a literary writer with novels such as The Wasp Factory and Walking on Glass, his first SF novel, Consider Phlebas, was published in 1987. Since then the Culture series has gone from strength to strength, featuring a number of seminal titles such as Use of Weapons, Feersum Endjinn and Matter. His most recent novel, Surface Detail, was released in hardback in 2010.

To celebrate the paperback release of Surface Detail, this special event will feature a reading, Q+A session and signing with Iain. This will be Iain's only tour date in the East Midlands, so be sure not to miss out on an evening with one of science fiction's leading lights.

This event is brought to you by Orbit and Alt.Fiction, a Writing East Midlands brand. Visit to see the year round programme of events.
