By Jason Boog Comment

Hachette Book Group’s new Redhook imprint will release Iain BanksThe Quarry on June 25, the publishing dates set quickly after Banks’ terminal cancer diagnosis.

Hachette’s Orbit imprint has published science fiction novels written by Banks. Here’s more about The Quarry:

Kit doesn’t know who his mother is. What he does know, however, is that his father, Guy, is dying of cancer. Feeling his death is imminent, Guy gathers around him his oldest friends—or at least the friends with the most to lose by his death. Paul, the rising star in the Labour party who dreads the day a tape they all made at university might come to light; Alison and Robbie, corporate bunnies whose relationship is daily more fractious; Pris and Haze, once an item, now estranged; and finally Hol; friend, mentor, former lover and the only one who seemed to care.
