Any China Miéville fans here? I hope so, firstly because he is fucking awesome, but secondly because we have a kind of rare book of his to give away. Oh fuck yeah.
So China was supposed to be the guest of honor at the 2013 World Fantasy Convention. Then all of a sudden he wasn’t. Pained as he was at having to cancel, he decided to create this little book as an apology and a present for all those who—like me—were disappointed that he wouldn’t be there to brush elbows. Sure, Neil Gaiman ended up replacing him and that was awesome. But so was this little book.
With one long(er) story and seven microstories, it feels a little bit like a postcard from Mr. Miéville. And did I mention you can’t get this book anywhere else? (Except occasionally on eBay where it is currently listed for between 25 and 35 bucks.) So go sign up for the giveaway already.
The fine print: This giveaway is open to anyone anywhere in the world. The giveaway ends on Tuesday, June 3rd at 12 am Central European Time. The winner will be notified by email and announced the following Friday. If said winner does not respond to said email within a week, a new winner will be plucked from the proverbial hat.
