Review: This Census-Taker by China Miéville


China Miéville has a new novella out.

“The deceptively simple story is dreamlike and disturbing, and constantly oscillating between literary fiction (albeit with a Borgesian touch), fantasy, and horror. It is also a murder mystery.

And it’s a secret Bas-Lag story.”

…as I’m arguing in my review of This Census-Taker in Strange Horizons.
