— China Miéville on City of Ruin


Nights of Villjamur

The first chapter from the first novel in the Legends of the Red Sun series. This is an introduction to the city of Villjamur.

City of Ruin

A double extract of the prologue and a later chapter. This novel is a lot weirder than the first, so hopefully that is on display here. This novel should act as a standalone, too.

The Book of Transformations

Two extracts, one featuring the anarchists’ first strike on Villjamur and then introducing Lan, one of the Villjamur Knights superheroes.
