Om Three Moments of an Explosion: Stories

Award winner Mieville (Embassytown) moves effortlessly among realism, fantasy, and surrealism ... His characters, whether ordinary witnesses to extraordinary events or lunatics operating out of inexplicable compulsions, are invariably well drawn and compelling. Above all, what the stories have in common is a sense that the world is not just strange, but stranger than we can ever really comprehend Publisher's Weekly (Starred Review) Horror, noir, fantasy, politics, and poetry swirl into combinations as satisfying intellectually as they are emotionally. Mieville (Railsea, 2012, etc.) has a habit of building his narratives by taking a metaphor, often about a political or social issue, and asking what would happen if it were literally true ... In less-capable hands, this method might result in mere gags or dead horses endlessly beaten. (Good thing this isn't a Mieville story, or you'd be wiping off bits of rotten horseflesh.) In Mieville's hands it ranges from clever to profound ... Bradbury meets Borges, with Lovecraft gibbering tumultuously just out of hearing Kirkus (Starred Review)
