  2. The state of the art

    "As one of the centrepieces of the current SciFi season across BBC Radio, Radio 4 put out this dramatisation of one of Iain M. Banks‘ rare short pieces: The State of the Art. It’s a rare example of outright humour in Banks’ work, which is usually darker in his non-M fiction, and more oblique in his Science Fiction (see this excellent list of Ship Names in the Culture). It’s 1977, and a Culture ship visits earth to survey it. Enjoy." via speechification
