#forIain

1 Comment

I took part in a rather science fictional thing last night. A trans-national wake fro someone still alive moderated and shared over twitter.

I’m not sure where everyone else was on the #forIain hashtag last night, but I was in The Netherlands at the Planck conference when I joined in with the mass single malt drinking in honour of Iain (M) Banks.

It was sad, but also a little cathartic. I quite like the idea of holding a wake for someone before they’re gone, but know that’s not always possible.

  1. I didn’t know about it, but fortunately I was raising a glass of a single-cask Glen Scotia anyway. Now I’m extra-glad I did.
