Seeing as only one of his novels was nominated (and did not even make the finals), I am guessing that not everyone holds him up all that high.
Don't forget, he writes his mainstream novels as "Iain Banks" and his Science Fiction novels as "Iain M. Banks". An interesting way of separating his two chosen genres.
