I was just about to open a thread on your puzzle, Tim. A really enjoyable solve even for someone who has never read an Iain Banks novel. I wasn't aware that he sometimes used M and sometimes not and it is always good to learn something from a puzzle. Very nicely handled and a fitting tribute, thanks very much.
On another note, I failed on your numerical in Magpie last month as I guessed the last bit from two alternatives, because I couldn't figure out the code, and somehow the odds never seem 50/50 when you do that. Anyway, I am very impressed by anyone who can set both types of puzzle. Replies: There have been no replies.
