    That is so true about Embassytown. I remember someone posted they couldn't get into the audio book of Railsea and I immediately remembered Embassytown. If all those onomatopoeic sounds from Railsea were a bother, how the heck could anyone read Embassytown? Unless they used studio trickery and overlapped two voices at the same time, it's impossible to say those words out loud. As for Railsea, I suggested that one because it's easiest to get into, not because it's his best. I feel like an average The Hunger Games reader would commit suicide via self-smacking of own head with the hardcover copy of Perdido. It's not an easy read but it's rewarding, not just for the payoff but the entire read. It's extremely well-crafted and rich in language. I think Mieville was an English professor when he was 19 or something crazy like that.

    The last thing he published was The Apology when he bailed on some convention. It's a chapbook with new and unpublished short stories.

    I've actually listened to the audiobook for Embassytown, and the production is great. They do use "studio trickery" and you hear the narrator pronounce both words at the same time. It makes for a fantastic effect and definitely adds another dimension to story, so much so, that I don't know that you can fully appreciate the book without listening to it. You do have to pay attention but somehow your brain learns to process both words. It's mind-expanding!

    [Subterranean Press will] be publishing the signed limited edition of China Mieville's brilliant new novel, The Last Days of New Paris, which will feature a full-color cover and full-color interiors by Vincent Chong. Read on for the full details.

    “In Paris you had to be ready to fight art and the Hellish—not to mention Nazis…”

    Multiple-award-winning China Mieville’s extraordinary novel The Last Days of New Paris is a door into the heart of a twentieth century that never was, that always was. The hinges it turns on are surrealism and anti-Fascism and occultism, oiled by vivid prose that startlingly mines art and poetry for its images. The story it opens to reveal combines mystery and adventure, philosophy and revolution.

    Here is the American Jack Parsons in 1941 Marseilles, navigating a tangle of competing wartime powers incapable of containing the chaos of wartime Europe. A student of the occult, he encounters fleeing surrealist thinkers, and something extraordinary is born in the cauldron of his imagination.

    Here is the resistance fighter Thibaut in 1950 Paris, struggling to survive and fight on in a city haunted by manifs, manifestations from the dreams and nightmares of the century’s most fertile imaginations. These manifs are in conflict with hellspawn called up by Nazi officer-priests.

    By turns heartbreaking and breathtaking, this book conjures a world that demands attention, and tests loyalties to concepts as fundamental as reality itself. Here is a tour de force of imagination, here is a crescendo of thought, here, at last, is the exquisite corpse. Here is The Last Days of New Paris, an unmissable new novel by a modern master of the fantasic.

    Limited: 500 signed numbered hardcover copies: $50

    Lettered: 26 signed leatherbound copies, housed in a custom traycase: $250

    Thanks! Unbelievable that two of these sets were sold within a day of each other. And I still haven't found a buyer for Rat, so if anyone knows anyone, cough cough. . .
