    Perdido audiobook error?

    Hi guys, I was going to buy the Audible audiobook of Perdido Street Station, but several of the reviews (albeit older reviews) mention editing errors where a chunk of the book is missing. Does anybody know if that’s still the case or if it’s been corrected? :)

    The Last Days of New Paris

    Just came out today and I bought it. Absolutely blown away by the first few pages. I'm both a Francophile and a huge fan of surrealism, so it's as if this book were written specifically for me.

    Favourite Mieville Excerpts? Writing a suite of illustrative music

    I've been commissioned to write a new suite of music and have decided to write pieces based on excerpts from Mieville's works. They will probably be narrated, and include some improvisation. I have read the 3 Bas Lag books, Kraken and Looking For Jake. Some ideas I already have are the 'demons...

    The Tain

    Hello, Right now I am reading China´s post-apocaliptic story The Tain and what seems strange to me is the fact all things capable of reflection (tiles, mirrors, water etc.) were destroyed by the imagos in their coming through but human eyes which are also able to reflect things were untouched...

    Best China Mieville book?

    I realised that I still haven't read anything by China Mieville, and this is something I should rectify. Any suggestions as to the best book to introduce me to his writing?

    Dial H

    Has anyone else read his Dial H series for DC Comics? I thought it was one of the best titles DC has put out in years. It's only 17 issues and it's collected in two TPBs.

    Perdido Street Station

    Rather than turning the Book Hauls into a discussion thread I thought I'd start a new one for this book I've just ordered. Now as some of you know I'm currently making my way through the SF Masterworks series so this is a bit of a deviation from that but I happened to be in Waterstones today and...

    Looking for Jake

    I realize there is already a thread about 'Looking for Jake' to discuss the stories within the collected work itself, but this question is regarding the story itself. While I loved almost all of the stories within the collection (except for 'On the Way to the Front' perhaps), the title story...

    Iron Council

    After very briefly perusing the threads on Mieville here I've yet to hear anyone mention Iron Council, for better or worse. Personally I thought it was his best book by far. It wasnt the characters, it wasnt the action sequences, and it also was not the juicy homosexual relationships of one Mr...
