Iain M. Banks was a Scottish author, most notably known for his science fiction novels. Born in Dunfermline, Scotland on February 16, 1954, Banks would eventually become one of the most influential and well-respected writers within the sci-fi genre.

Throughout his career, Banks published a number of critically acclaimed novels, including The Player of Games and Excession. His use of intricate world-building and attention to detail made his novels a standout amongst others within the genre.

Banks was not only known for his talent as a writer, but also for his passion for various humanitarian causes. He was an active supporter of both Greenpeace and Amnesty International, and often used his writing as a means of promoting progressive social change.
