Iain Banks, Transition (2009)


My review of Banks' latest is now up at Strange Horizons. In sum: not very good.

Yes, I suspected as much. Bloody Banks.

In The Bridge, you'll remember, there's a technology (a ceiling filled with swiss-cheesy holes into one of which you stick your head) that enables people to ride piggy-back upon the consciousness of other people, an experience to which most become addicted.

I remember that being in Walking On Glass or am I wrong?

Ooh you fill me with uncertainty. It could have been. It was the same novel that made a big deal of the 'an unstoppable force meets an immovable object' thing. Was that The Bridge? Or Walking on Glass? I've a sinking feeling it was the latter.
