Use of Weapons

Iain M. Banks

Bantam Books 1992
A book review by Danny Yee © 1992
Use of Weapons is an addition to Banks' Culture novels, set in the same universe as Consider Phlebas and Player of Games. It is a more psychological novel than the others, with less dramatic action, but offers a characteristic mix of technological ideas and light humour, as well as some serious ideas about the ethics of war. The story is black even for Banks, with a characteristically bleak ending.

May 1992
