About this author

A British "fantastic fiction" writer. He is fond of describing his work as "weird fiction" (after early 20th century pulp and horror writers such as H. P. Lovecraft), and belongs to a loose group of writers sometimes called New Weird who consciously attempt to move fantasy away from commercial, genre clichés of Tolkien epigons. He is also active in left-wing politics as a member of the Socialist Workers Party. He has stood for the House of Commons for the Socialist Alliance, and published a book on Marxism and international law.

Excerpted from Wikipedia.




Jane Gaskell,Some Summer Lands.

Mind you’ve brought along enough hatred today.

Interviews

June 2009, China Miéville
"I was interested in steeping myself in both Eastern and Mid-European writing, and classic crime fiction. I was focused a lot on fidelity to the paradigm, so no "cheating," no last-minute evidence, no characters appearing at the last second, and so on. I wanted a fan of the genre to feel I'd played fair.

“A trap is only a trap if you don't know about it. If you know about it, it's a challenge.”
China Miéville, King Rat

“In time, in time they tell me, I'll not feel so bad. I don't want time to heal me. There's a reason I'm like this.
I want time to set me ugly and knotted with loss of you, marking me. I won't smooth you away.
I can't say goodbye.”
China Miéville, The Scar

“Scars are not injuries, Tanner Sack. A scar is a healing. After injury, a scar is what makes you whole.”
China Miéville, The Scar
