While reading Life During Wartime recently I noticed a striking similarity the writing style to that of Iain M. Banks.

Never heard that Iain M. Banks cites Lucius Shepard as an influence, but some of the passages fairly scream it out.

Same again (sort of) with Richard Morgan.

Have you ever heard either of these two cite you as an influence?

Nah, but then I've never read Morgan and only have read the first Banks book, the Wasp Factory....and I don't hear much out of England...

Ah well, Richard Morgan is worth reading. Iain M. Banks Sci-Fi is quite good, although not all that deep.
