    Man what a great guy. Makes me think that he’s one of the few authors that I haven’t met that I would love to meet! Also, he is one of the few authors that you can tell just LOVE to write. And not just about one genre or topic, he just writes whatever he thinks up, yet you can always tell that its his book. He kinda reminds me of a younger, stranger neil gaiman.

    After winning that many times it should be renamed the China Mieville Award!
