    Beneath the towering bleached ribs of a dead, ancient beast lies New Crobuzon, a squalid city where humans, Re-mades, and arcane races live in perpetual fear of Parliament and its brutal militia. The air and rivers are thick with factory pollutants and the strange effluents of alchemy, and the ghettos contain a vast mix of workers, artists, spies, junkies, and whores.

    The best young author I have listened to (read) in years. China Mieville searches have always come up squat here on audible, and I was so very excited to see Perdido Street Station finally come up for availability. Please make all his other books available.

    On to Mievelle himself. The cyberpunk world of New Crobuzon is disturbing, to say the least. His vivid word pictures bring to life fantastical dreams of the imagination that both shock and attract. Quite simply the most intriguing author I have come across in a very, very long time.

  • The Dirty Streets of Heaven: Bobby Dollar, Book 1

    Bobby Dollar is an angel - a real one. He knows a lot about sin, and not just in his professional capacity as an advocate for souls caught between Heaven and Hell. Bobby’s wrestling with a few deadly sins of his own - pride, anger, even lust. But his problems aren’t all his fault. Bobby can’t entirely trust his heavenly superiors, and he’s not too sure about any of his fellow earthbound angels either, especially the new kid that Heaven has dropped into their midst, a trainee angel who asks too many questions.

    Michael says: "Angel Noir"
    "Dresden in at play between heaven and hell."

    If you enjoyed this but haven't heard of Harry Dresden, check that out too.

    Felt a bit copycatish, but Tad, being the brilliant writer pulls it off on its own merits.

    Good character development, snarky dialogue, and a grand conspiracy theory meld together along with a theme that questions the religious bones in your body. A great combination.
