Iain M. Banks by Paul Kincaid( )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 1,174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is almost impossible to fully express the influence that Scottish Author Iain M. Banks (1954-2013) has had on science fiction, particularly in the UK. The publication of Consider Phlebas in 1987 was one of the triggers for the British Renaissance. This exuberant left-wing space opera was also one of the foundational texts for the New Space Opera, and was a clear influence on Stephen Baxter, Paul J. McAuley, Justina Robson and Alistair Reynolds. Banks authored 14 sf novels, nine of them set in the universe of the Culture, exploring most of the major sf themes and genres: utopia and dystopia, interstellar warfare, interaction with alien life, the biology-technology divide, and perpetual surveillance. His writing is characterized by an exceptional attention to literary style and a signature dark sense of humor. He achieved mainstream success as one of the giants of Scottish literary fiction, Iain Banks: author of The Wasp Factory (1984), Walking on Glass (1985), The Bridge (1986), Espedair Street (1987), and thirteen other mainstream novels. Paul Kincaid argues that many of Banks's supposedly mainstream novels had science-fiction aspects, while mainstream techniques and sensibilities were incorporated into all of his science fiction. It is, therefore, impossible to consider one aspect of his fiction in isolation; the two feed into each other"--

Rewarming methodologies in the field( )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Heatpac is currently used by the U.S. Marine Corps to warm cold- stressed infantry personnel in the field. Recently, this system has been modified so a small wetting chamber called Humipac can be attached to the Heatpac so personnel can breathe warm humidified air. The air is saturated to 95-99% humidity with a temperature range of 45.3 to 49.4 deg C. In a series of experiments using a USMC issue sleeping bag, we compared the effectiveness of the Heatpac vs. combined Heatpac/Humipac vs. rewarming by shivering. Subjects wearing only swimming trunks were placed in 12.8 deg C water for 1 hr. At the end of that period, any of the three interventions were randomly assigned. In all conditions, the subject was placed in a sleeping bag. HR, T(re) and T(es) temperatures, and metabolic rates were monitored during the cooling phase and for 120 min during the rewarming phase. Breathing the warm humidified air did not significantly alter the rate of body rewarming. In some cases, normal shivering induced as large an increase in core temperature as did the active interventions. Additional studies are underway to investigate the relative role that these various rewarming systems have on thermogenesis
