I wasn't sure what to expect from China Mieville when it came to short stories. But I've read a handful of his novels and was excited to see what he could do with the medium. I was not disappointed. I was slightly terrified by a few of them, and overall I couldn't believe how good they were. I borrowed this from the library, but it's one that I'm going to have to pick up for my own. I already know I'm going to have to give these another once over, when I do I'll be able to articulate my thoughts a little more clearly.
