Looking for Jake and Other Stories (Paperback)

£9.99
Usually despatched within 2 days.

Synopsis

Step into a London ravaged by unearthly creatures at once utterly alien and chillingly familiar.



In China Mieville's award-winning novella 'The Tain', we learn the reason for the invaders' terrible revenge. One survivor must trek through the ruins of the city with a desperate plan to stand against their assault.



In addition to 'The Tain', this superb collection contains thirteen short stories, of visionary cityscapes and urban paranoia, ghosts, monsters and impossible diseases. Several of the stories are published here for the first time: these include one set in New Crobuzon, the location of the award-winning series of novels that began with Perdido Street Station; and one in comic-strip form, illustrated by top graphic artist Liam Sharp. Looking for Jake and Other Stories displays the sheer imaginative scope of China Mieville's work.
