Leap into Miéville Month

And what better way to ring in the new month than with a terrible pun?

It’s been a long time coming but the time of rejoicing is finally here.  A month of nothing but China Miéville.  Your mileage may vary.  When I read Embassytwon back in June of 2011, I made a quiet vow to start gathering Miéville’s novels for the next Cannonball Read.  I’ve had a few of them sitting in a box thanks to the bargain basement prices of Borders’ burnout, but I was missing a copy of Perdido Street Station which was where I really wanted to start the marathon.  And now I have it!

So I’m declaring March to be Miéville Month, if only so I can have the Miéville March Madness Marathon while the rest of the country is busy with regular March Madness and all the bracketing that entails.  More alliteration is always better.  The reading order will look something like this: Perdido Street Station, The Scar, The City & the City, and Kraken.  I’m holding off on Iron Council for a number of reasons, but if I’m ahead of schedule I might add it just to keep the month purely Miéville.

See you on the other side,
