Paul's Reading List 2016

Recommended Posts

This year's special project is to re-read all of the late, great Iain Banks's non-genre fiction, sequentially, at least one book per

month, starting with The Wasp Factory and ending with The Quarry. That's 15 books, 16 if I also re-read  "Raw Spirit", his

excellent non-fiction book about Scottish whisky, so the exercise may continue into 2017.


Next year I'll be doing the same with his 13 SF books under the name of Iain M Banks.
