A timeline of Iain M Banks’s The Culture novels

Using this timeline from The Culture Wiki, I created a to-scale visual timeline of major events in Iain M Banks’s Culture novels. It requires a bit of scrolling.

Dates are approximate. Where the original timeline gave a range, I’ve put the event in the middle of that range. The present events of Use of Weapons, for example, could fall shortly after Player of Games, not before.

It’s interesting to note that Matter happens earlier than I assumed, and Surface Detail happens a lot later than everything else.
