In conversation with Tom Hunter
Three-times winner of the Arthur C Clarke Award, academic, author and activist, China Miéville discusses his work and his views of fiction and science with Tom Hunter, Director of the Clarke Awards. Read a write-up of this event over on our blog, or listen to a podcast of China discussing it with our reporter.
China Miéville is an award-winning British fiction writer. He belongs to a loose group of writers sometimes called New Weird who consciously attempt to move fantasy away from the commercial and genre clichés of Tolkien. He is also active in politics and published his PhD thesis as a book on Marxism and international law.
His novels include Perdido Street Station, The Scar, Iron Council and The City & The City. He has also written a children's novel, Un Lun Dun and his latest work, combining linguistics with extraterrestrials is Embassytown.
