I can't believe we have a four-way tie for second place. The second poll will be half the size of the first. Cloud Atlas will probably win, but as much as I planned on eventually scheduling it to read, I was really hoping for something less massive. That book is 528 pages in the paperback edition. Oh well. 2nd poll coming up shortly.

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.
