Its all a giant conspiracy I tell you …

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) today began considering a poster promoting Iain M Banks’s latest science fiction book after receiving a complaint from a passenger on the London Underground.
The poster, which first appeared on the tube on July 4, included a line from Justina Robson’s review which appeared last year in the Guardian describing The Algebraist as “a perfect place to have your mind blown to smithereens”.

“We are looking into a poster on the London Underground for the new science fiction novel of Iain Banks,” said ASA spokesman Matt Wilson. “The complainer objected to the critic’s position on it, saying ‘have your mind blown to smithereens’. Given the recent attacks on the Tube they felt this was not appropriate, so we are in the process of looking at this to see if action needs to be taken.”
