I quite enjoy China Mieville's writing and am tempted to try his children's targetted 'Un Lun Dun' anyone read it?

He's interviewed by The Guardian here:

And I'm just about to start Iron Council which I bought a couple of years ago. That's more or less where it fell in my backlog of books to read.

I still haven't started Iron Council I'm catching up with some recent Interzones!

I remember feeling a little let down at the end of The Scar. Can't remember why that was now.

I was hoping to acquire a China Mieville short story for Murky Depths but trying to contact him is proving problematic.

This. The best of the three, I think.

I think this is the best of the three Bas-Lag books. What else can we write about?!

Try the submissions route or convince me you're name on the front cover is going to help me sell magazines!!!!
