One of the boldest and most inventive talents working in any genre of fiction at the moment, China Mieville has just become the first author to win the Arthur C. Clarke Award for the third time with his haunting crime mystery, The City and the City. His brand new book, Kraken, plunges us headlong into a hallucinatory London of magic, murder and warring religious cults, after a rare giant squid specimen suddenly disappears from the Natural History Museum. A tale sure to delight fans and make new converts to Mieville’s invigorating brand of dark literary fantasy.
