Transreal Fiction & Iain Banks
Like many others, I was gutted when Iain revealed that he had terminal cancer.
I’ve known him, and his wife, for many years and I’ll miss him as good friend, however infrequently we might meet sometimes.
As you might have noticed, I’ve withdrawn the signing/dedication service we used to provide for his books and have no intention of trying to persuade him to sign more books for me as he has, I’m sure, much better things to do with his time.
If he offers to sign copies of his new h/c in June, that’s another thing, but I wouldn’t hold your breath!
Transreal Fiction is a shop dedicated to selling science fiction, fantasy & related books, together with a limited selection of other merchandise.But really, it’s about books. Transreal Fiction opened in April 1997 in Cowgatehead and moved to it’s present location nearby in June 2011. The owner, Mike Calder, first sold sf & f books many years ago and has worked in the business either part- or full-time since. For years he also had a respectable job as well, but that’s another story…
The shop is named after the term coined by Rudy Rucker to describe his fiction and I thought it an apt name for a shop specialising in speculative fiction. And, in case you’re wondering, yes, Rudy Rucker was happy to allow me to use of the term as a name for my shop.
