Iain Banks’ Final Novel, The Quarry, Drops To £4 On Amazon

51YwkzwYlgLThe new novel from the recently-departed Iain Banks, The Quarry, is due to be published next week.

And for some unknown reason, Amazon.co.uk have dropped the price of the hardcover from £19 to £4. The eventual paperback is scheduled and listed for twice that price. The Amazon.com price only drops it from $26 to $21.50.

Many of us are very fond of the work of Iain Banks or his sci-fi alter ego Iain M Banks, as well as the man (men?) himself.

Whether it’s a glitch by Amazon or an intended promotion, it does mean that more of you should have no reason to delay picking up and reading the man’s final novel.
