{random} here


so I’m in Un Lun Dun today courtesy of China Mieville and at the daughter’s insistence.

just surfaced this side for the moment, to check in so as to avoid the phlegm-effect.*

where are you?

  1. Ooh, I’ll be awaiting your review. I’ve ne’er read Mieville, but I’ve The City & the City and Kraken on my TBR. He’s apparently rather polarizing, from what I gather, and very erudite. Un Lun Dun seems more approachable than some of his other stuff, I think, and possibly more fun, too. Enjoy!

    I’m just over halfway through Christopher Paolini’s concluding installment in the Inheritance Cycle, among other places.

    I’m in Mexico City hanging out with the visceral realists via Bolano’s The Savage Detectives.

    I love that N insisted you read Un Lun Dun! Reminds me of myself when I was a kidlit. 🙂

    I am on the planet Terminus at the edge of the Galactic Empire, waiting for Hari Seldon to reappear at the 80th anniversary of the move of the Foundation.
