Don't look now, but it's only new China Mieville!
And no, I don't even mean Embassytown. Though that's what I've been reading these past few night, at long goddamn last. And it is... exquisite. But no, that's not the new China Mieville I mean.
Here. This morning The Guardian posted an exclusive short story by the man, the muscle, the mind behind The City and The City: at a glance 'Covehithe' seems to be about a risen rigging platform - though don't hold me to that. I've only read the first section for the minute but of course, it's superb. Of course it is: for Pete's sake, it's new China Mieville.
Away yes go and read it, then. Catching up on the blogs can wait today. :)
