Description

Iain Menzies Banks (b. February 16, 1954; d. June 9, 2013) was a Scottish science-fiction author.

Notes

Legally, his name is "Iain Banks." His parents had intended to name him "Iain Menzies Banks," but due to a mistake on his father's part, he omitted the middle name, and thus did not happen. However, Banks did adopt his "middle name" in his speculative fiction writing byline.
