China Miéville takes us though his inimitable brain onto trains to hunt moles in yet another world & instructs us about philosophy, adventure, friendship, duty, & responsibility. Punctuated with the rhythms of the rails rather than the sea shanty, Railseapulls us along on an inexorable journey where youth equals innocence & experience comes at a price – a price not agree to.


We get kidnapping, pirates, & corrupt officials. There are moles more intelligent than they appear. An homage to Viriconium, perhaps. Perhaps not be Miéville’s greatest, deepest, work, but a fun, wild swashbuckling ride that you should take.

Out now (UK) (US), though the UK has a better cover (see there above?)
