Ny bok av China Miéville på g! Railsea utkommer i maj och verkar vara en mer ungdomsbetonad bok än hans 3-4 senaste.
"On board the moletrain Medes, Sham Yes ap Soorap watches in awe as he witnesses his first moldywarpe hunt: the giant mole bursting from the earth, the harpoonists targeting their prey, the battle resulting in one’s death and the other’s glory. But no matter how spectacular it is, Sham can’t shake the sense that there is more to life than traveling the endless rails of the railsea—even if his captain can think only of the hunt for the ivory-colored mole she’s been chasing since it took her arm all those years ago. When they come across a wrecked train, at first it’s a welcome distraction. But what Sham finds in the derelict—a kind of treasure map indicating a mythical place untouched by iron rails—leads to considerably more than he’d bargained for. Soon he’s hunted on all sides, by pirates, trainsfolk, monsters, and salvage-scrabblers. And it might not be just Sham’s life that’s about to change. It could be the whole of the railsea."
Kan vi säga Moby Dick? ;)

Jag förhåller mig ändå lite sval - har inte ens läst klart Embassytown som kom ut förra våren, trots att jag förhandsbeställde den och allt. Kanske borde göra det innan jag köper Railsea... (Tyvärr tyckte jag att Embassytown var lite i tråkigaste laget.)
