Had a few days off this week and read 'the scar" by Mieville and ‘the erstwhile’ by Catling. Enjoyed the scar, probably a little moreso than Perdido Street Station. It’s either a little less ‘futurama’-ish or am more used to the the more alien characters of the first.
As for the erstwhile, really loved that. Annoyed that still a while til the third. So, so good. Also read that Catling/Iain Sinclair book on Strange Attractor, Catling’s part on that was also good.
I’ve managed to find the Gormenghast trilogy in various charity shops recently. Recommended?
