Tobey It was kind of surreal to hear Mieville actually speak, since I've been reading his work for so long. I was kind of expecting a grittier Jason Stathamy accent, considering the fact that on all of his cover pictures he looks like he's thinking about beating you up, not the well-spoken gentlemen in the video. But it does nothing to disprove my firmly held belief that (and I paraphrase myself here) 'China Mieville is a literary badass.'

Magdelanye Because I adored perdido street station, I,ve been reading Mieville whenever I can get hold of one of his titles. I don;t love thhem all! I do not like detective/ mysteries in general, but after watching this, I can hardly wait.
I really like him referring to holes in logic, and the idea of writing one book in every genre. Hope this includes biogreaphy as this is one exciting man...

Didn't imagine this massive, hearty and voluble guy writing "rejectamentalist manifesto". It becomes obvious that I had take up the wrong way. Perdido Streets Station, you said? OK, let's see. (better later than never, isn't it?)
