China Miéville

We've covered Miéville before. He's absolutely at the cutting edge of modern science fiction, and he's also very good. So why not keep up with him?

Justin Jordans write in The Guardian: "Miéville's passions crystallised early on: 'Ever since I was two, I've loved octopuses, monsters, abandoned buildings . . . One gets asked, if you're into the sort of thing I'm into, how did you get into it, and my response is always: how did you get out of it? You look at a class of six-year-olds, they're all reading about witches and aliens and spaceships and magic spells.' "
