I'm on a mailing list whose subject is China Miéville's works. Newbie to the list came on asking how to pronounce China's name, as well as how to pronounce Perdido, which is part of the title for a book of his.

What is amusing to me about the note is that the person who definitively answered the question (though several others answered) was China himself.


  • Last post

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
