40th anniversary edition of Iain Banks' classic debut novel THE WASP FACTORY, with an introduction by Neil Gaiman

'A gothic horror story of quite exceptional quality' Financial Times

'Two years after I killed Blyth I murdered my young brother Paul, for quite different reasons than I'd disposed of Blyth, and then a year after that I did for my young cousin Esmerelda, more or less on a whim. That's my score to date. Three. I haven't killed anybody for years, and don't intend to ever again. It was just a stage I was going through.'

Enter - if you can bear it - the extraordinary private world of Frank, just sixteen, and unconventional, to say the least.
