Dennis Kelly is the guy who wrote Utopia, that was good (and pretty Dark).

That's ace news.
I've just finished re-reading it a few weeks ago. I just hope the series is well received enough that they make Player of Games and Look to Windward.

It is great news, and makes for an interesting development for a studio - aside from a couple of characters, the only recurring part is the universe.
Player of Games would be brilliant if they get to it, but Use of Weapons was always my favourite... but how does that translate to screen?
It doesnít really, unless they completely changed it beyond recognition

I don't know how well a tv series could convey the feeling of massiveness and distance in the books, but would definitely be interested to see the finger licking islanders section.. That bit really went through me

Anyone got any similar authors and where would you recommend I start
I've got Alastair Reynolds and Peter F. Hamilton on the list so far.
Although weirdly, the first Hamilton book, Pandora's Star is not available in physical format anywhere, the only way I seem to be able to find it is digital.

The gap cycle by Stephen Donaldson is stinking and has a dark side like Banks works.
Gap series is brilliant.. Richard Morgan and Neil Asher are in the same vein in different ways
Banks said he write consider phlebeas in particular with the screen in mind... it's ideal
Michael Marshall smith too
People have talked about Anne Leckieís debut series being in the same vein but I couldnít get into it. Dropped the first one about a 1/4 of the way through but YMMV
Me too... couldn't finish first
Same with Jeff thingy annihilation stuff ... read first but left me cold
Just so dry, wasnít it
That's the word
