the big story afterwards here in Oz is that the pastors poor feelings were hurt. You see the PM was rude to him and embarrassed him on TV. Thankyou Murdoch newspapers.

Ouch. Anger channelled with pinpoint accuracy.

@8 yes indeed, thanks

Crow Road was my first Banks read and it hooked me. I was blown away by the casual way he could describe geological timeframe and the sensitive play on conflict over religion, generations and class within a family.
When I was told he wrote Sci Fi too i thought it would be worth a look - he managed to make me a Sci Fi reader. I first read Excession and I think there would be very few better in the genre. I was astounded at his ease in switching from deep philosophy, to wargames schlock to politics to well grounded SCI-fi (as opposed to science-y fantasy).
He will be missed.

meanwhile mainstream british televison has a show about Thai 'Ladyboys' including full and frank discussion about sexual identity of the girls and their parners, sex acts, genital and hormonal treatments, and the inherent power imbalance between european tourists and thai hookers. US television is timid and bland by comparison.
Glad I live in Australia where we receive so much british content.
