How many of you have had a creative idea in your head that you’ve been tinkering with for years… only to see it manifest by another author/artist/muso before you’ve had a chance to shout about how good it is?
My feelings, pretty-much exactly, when I saw the cover of Iain M Banks’ new book.
(On the other hand, of course, it does tell me that the idea was a good one!)
Whatever the personal ironies (they’re all over the use of the fractal eyes theme, dammit!) it’s a kick-arse cover, and Mister Banks himself will be at FP to sign his latest Culture title, Surface Detail, on October 7th at 6pm.
