I forgot about this wee blog mate.
But Perdido street station is brilliant enough to power the valiant resurrection of Books, Coffee, whatever.
Why must you read this then?
a) China Mieville wrote this. He is a man Samit Basu worships. Samit Basu is a man we worship. This makes China SuperGod. We don' argue with that.
b) It's edgy. With science, magic, thamaturgy, drugs, freakish moths, exotic khepri, sentient machines and more.
c) The semi dystopic and unreally awesome world China describes will make your head spin. It might also make the weak amongst us miss buses and submission deadlines.
I don't want to get into details about the plot at all since that is something you'd best be delving into yourself.
Aztec, Espresso :)
Cheers and happy hols,
