Nataliya | 378 comments Thanks for posting it, Aloha! It's a very interesting interview, indeed. I love the part where he talks about Iron Council and the painful relationship between Judah and Cutter. That was the aspect of the book that really made me feel for the characters, and it's really interesting to see what CM had to say about it.

Nataliya | 378 comments Courtesy of Richard - an interview with China Miéville touching on his political views. It is best read, probably, in conjunction with his opinion piece, London's Overthrow.

Cecily | 301 comments Stray fact: "As a young teenager I really wanted to be a marine biologist."

For whoever it was who thought Mieville might be gay, he was living with a woman when this short Q&A interview was published.

Cecily | 301 comments On the publisher's website, there's a good interview mostly (but not solely) about Embassytown, in which he is also asked which of his books he'd recommend as an intro to his works (he gives TWO answers):

Allen (allenblair) | 227 comments Thanks for the link Cecily ... I thought it was interesting (and exciting) that he refers to possibly doing more books/stories from Embassytown's immerverse!

I think I didn't quite think he was gay, but wondered if he might be bi. Of course, him being with a woman doesn't rule that out, but who cares- it certainly sounds like good news for us women! :D

(Not that I personally ever had a chance with dear old CM, just sayin' for womenkind in general. :P )

Magdelanye | 173 comments and so perhaps we are now familiar enough to invite him to a forum where we can worship him suitably, i mean, ask intelligent questions.i personally was a bit revolted by the most recent blog bit and i wonder what direction he's headed.
