After a pretty damn long drought, there’s finally word of what China Miéville’s been up to lately! Tor UK has just posted a new 25-page short story by China Miéville called “Polynia”, as well as confirmation that there’s a new short story collection coming — the date having finally been settled as June 2015!
That’s over three years since Railsea‘s publication. It’s been a long wait but Miéville fans can rejoice! If you want to hear my thoughts about what might be in the new collection, check out this post.
I haven’t even read the story yet, I’ll be doing that as soon as this blog post is up. I might then come back and edit this post with some quick thoughts about the story. EDIT: Okay, I’ve read it, and it was good! Very weird, and a bit similar to the earlier story “Covehithe”, which deals with people’s reactions to inexplicable phenomena.
Here’s the link. Enjoy!
