1086 HumOfEvil Love those books but unsure they will translate well to screen. Lets hope they do!
361 candygram4mongo It's going to be difficult to pull off, I hope they treat it with appropriate gravitas.
113 blueeyes_austin Bezos says, "Musk, you can't grab this for yourself by naming some barges after ships from this series."
61 silentraven127 I'll keep hope tucked away somewhere beneath the pessimism I have for this project. That said, it *should* be easier to find a decent Culture t-shirt/coffee mug once there's an affiliated TV show...

As he rose and fell He passed the stages of his age and youth Entering the whirlpool.   Gentile or Jew O you who turn the wheel and look to windward, Consider Phlebas, who was once handsome and tall as you
110 GDMNW Delighted to hear this. Even if the series is terrible, just think about all the people who will be introduced to Iain Banks as a result. All those new people who will be able to explore the worlds we’ve already seen and meet the minds and biological characters we’ve come to appreciate. Actually wept when he died, because he created such a marvellous background and knowing I wouldn’t hear more from some of those characters was a little like losing friends.
100 AbstracTyler Oh my god! I've been dreaming about a Culture series since I read literally all of his books. I am going to mirror the common sentiment here and hope that they do it well. It makes me wonder though, if it were up to us, how would we develop the series in such a way that it retains the qualities of the books we all love so much?
83 MildlySuccessful Altered Carbon, The Expanse and now Culture novels... seems like Sci-Fi books are having their moment on web-TV.
21 Bastard-Wolf Does this series need to be read in order? I've had The Player of Games sitting on my shelf for awhile.
62 mykepagan I wonder how this will play with the fad for making everything more dark & edgy? Look at Altered Carbon: that was already a noir detective story but they managed to “darken it up” even further. The Cultire was created by Banks as his own take on a socialist utopia. If they dystopia-ize The Culture, they will destroy it for me.
