    Hell, anything Mieville has written is well worth reading.

    I actually haven't read Un-Lun-Dun, I have a natural aversion to "youth novels". And no idea why he hasn't written more Bas-Lag stuff :(

    Kraken was good fun and Embassytown was superb though :)

    EDIT: And how could I forget City and the City!

    No clue on Railsea, but I'll probably read it if I bump into it :-) And no, my name is boringly just my initials.
