Un Lun Dun
I was ready to purchase Un Lun Dun today, the first day the book was available for sale. Totally forgot the Random House rep was in the store today to pitch books. Now I have myself a shiny Advance Readers Copy of Un Lun Dun!

Nice! Isn't it cool to get comp stuff before going to buy it? Of course, a slight downside is getting comp stuff after you buy it but if it happens to me I just gift my copy to a friend or something. :)

Now I must go look up this Un Lun Dun book...

After the mild disappointment that was Iron Council (it was good, but he's done better), I'm really hoping this goes back to his former quality.

I haven't read anything by that author... I'll have to check him out.

China Mieville is absolutely my favorite author. He writes rich involved urban fantasies. By which I mean dirty, grimy, stab you in the back in the alley fantasies. No airy elves or any of that crap.

Hmmm... I'm going to have to make some time and check him out. Thanks for the tip! :)

It should be up at Rat's Reading within minutes of me finishing the book. I have Friday off, so I plan to read a bunch then.
