Book Club "Consider Phlebas" by Iain M. Banks - SYOTBOI
The "Seven Years On The Banks Of Iain" book club meets to discuss Iain M. Banks' 1987 novel "Consider Phlebas".
This is the first book published with the "M." name and also the first published Culture book (though Banks had written several books set in the Culture before then, which were published later), and as such the first "pure" science fiction novel (though it can, and has been, argued that all of Banks' books are speculative), as well as being arguably a reboot for the entire space opera genre.
This novel is also available as an audiobook at libro.fm .
