The SF community has lost one of its leading figures and far too young; really sad news and my condolences go to his family.
Adam has written a very detailed piece Here but I just wanted to say thanks Iain for 'Use of Weapons'. Thanks to you and that book, I got back into reading science fiction at a time when I never thought that would happen again. My reading has been the richer for it ever since then.
Rest In Peace.
