China Miéville's The City & the City is all-around wonderful; it's been a while since I enjoyed a detective story (heavily crossed with urban fantasy, and yet original) as much. Eerie cityscapes and twists of reality worthy, at times, of Borges. This thing has got style.

China Miéville's _everything_ is all-around wonderful. I really hope he achieves his aim of authoring a book on every subject, because I want to see his take on every subject.

Гм. У Чайны, помнится, почему-то были достаточно натужные русские переводы. Придётся искать в оригинале...

В бумажном виде искать или в электронном?
