China Miéville

Posted on March 6, 2013


China Miéville’s stories take you places where you are not sure you are. I often read passages in Miéville novels more than once. After going, huh? What just happened? Maybe I missed something? No, I missed nothing and what I read the first time happened and then it evaporated and only a squint of the eye is left. Gives me chills just thinking about it.

Read Kraken and The City & the City. You won’t be sorry.

A giant squid found at Ranheim in Trondheim 2 October 1954 is being measured by the Professors Erling Sivertsen and Svein Haftorn. The specimen was measured to a total length of 9.2 meters.
