Great press release to share regarding the brilliant sci-fi author Iain M Banks:

Gollancz will be publishing an SF Masterworks edition of Iain M. Banks’ BSFA Award-winning Feersum Endjinn.

The SF Masterworks list is over 100 books strong and contains many of the finest voices in British and world science fiction. The list was founded by the Chairman of Gollancz, Malcolm Edwards, with the help of leading SF writers and editors and the goal of bringing important books back into print. The list was described by Iain M. Banks himself as ‘amazing’ and ‘genuinely the best novels from sixty years of SF’.

The Masterworks edition of Feersum Endjinn will be published in hardback on April 14 2016, and will include a new introduction by Ken MacLeod. The hardback licence was agreed with Gollancz’s sister imprint, Orbit, the SF imprint of the Little, Brown Book Group, who will continue to publish Feersum Endjinn in paperback.

Malcolm Edwards said, ‘Iain was immensely supportive when we launched the SF Masterworks, giving us an enthusiastic endorsement which appeared prominently on all the books, so it’s a particular pleasure to see him join the list.’
