Or something like that, anyway. I was asked by Orbit to engage Iain in an email conversation regarding the state of the art (did you see what I did there?) of SF’s engagement with the wider culture, and specifically, why posh critics sneer at us skiffy writers.
Part of the brief was to, you know, sound intelligent and not squee too much because I’m talking to Iain Banks.
Hopefully I managed to keep a cogent line throughout, and you can judge for yourself by heading over to the Orbit website.
