Humans and mutants and arcane races throng the gloom beneath its chimneys, where the rivers are sluggish with unnatural effluent, and factories and foundries pound into the night. For more than a thousand years, the parliament and its brutal militia have ruled over a vast array of workers and artists, spies, magicians, junkies and whores. Now a stranger has come, with a pocketful of gold and an impossible demand, and inadvertently something unthinkable is released.
Snow Crash: Neal Stephenson. The Last Days of New Paris: Editorial Reviews Amazon. The novel's publication met with a burst of extravagant praise from Big Name Authors and was almost instantly a multiaward finalist.
You expect hyperbole in blurbs; and sometimes unworthy books win awards, so nominations don't necessarily mean much.

But Perdido Street Station deserves the acclaim. It's ambitious and brilliant and--rarity of rarities--sui generis. Its clearest influences are Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast trilogy and M. John Harrison's Viriconium books, but it isn't much like them. It's Dickensian in scope, but fast-paced and modern. It's a love song for cities, and it packs a world into its strange, sprawling, steam-punky city of New Crobuzon.
It can be read with equal validity as fantasy, science fiction, horror, or slipstream. It's got love, loss, crime, sex, riots, mad scientists, drugs, art, corruption, demons, dreams, obsession, magic, aliens, subversion, torture, dirigibles, romantic outlaws, artificial intelligence, and dangerous cults.

This massive tome is the first in the New Crobuson series. It is a dystopian story jammed with a myriad of sentient life forms, plot lines, villains, filth, gore, weapons, sex, poverty, politics, organized crime, moral questions, and techno-babble.
Some of it even has a steam-punk feel. China Mieville has a very prolific and detailed imagination. And if he imagined it, it is on the page. This book is not my usual read. Many of the images are grotesque, many are repellant, and some are just flat out gross. That said, it is strangely compelling and engrossing. Isaac is the main protagonist of the tale.
He is a free-lance scientist, working in a lab full of pilfered equipment. He leads an unconventional life in an unconventional city, managing to cobble together enough work to provide a living while he pursues his own passions. Lin, an insect woman, is one of his passions. This sort of cross species love is not widely accepted even in this society. They communicate in sign language, and, as strange as their biology may be, their relationship is a love story. Each of them is approached with a special commission.
Isaac is asked by a bird man to restore his ability to fly. Lin is an artist and a grotesque Remade crime boss Motley commissions her to sculpt him. Her medium is some sort of waxy body secretion that she spits from a gland. Remade are creatures that have literally been remade from parts of humans, machines, and other creatures. Motley is a particularly bizarre combination of many parts.
As Isaac dives into his extravagant research of flight he receives a brightly colored caterpillar of unknown species or origin. You know that disaster is looming in that bright little caterpillar.
He is not alone. Armada, a floating city made up of the hulls of thousands of captured vessels, travels slowly across the world of Bas-Lag, sending out its pirate ships to prey on the unwary, gradually assembling the supplies and captive personnel it needs to create a stupendous work of dark magic.
Bellis Coldwine, an embittered, lonely woman, exiled from the great city of New Crobuzon, is merely one of a host of people accidentally trapped in Armada's far-flung net, but she soon finds herself playing a vital role in the byzantine plans of the city's half-mad rulers. Together they sail through treacherous, magic-ridden seas, on a quest for the Scar, a place where reality mutates and all things become possible.
This is state-of-the-art dark fantasy and a likely candidate for any number of award nominations. July 2. Perdido Street Station won the Arthur C. Clarke Award and the British Fantasy Award.
