    Weird fiction, sci-fi/fantasy, postmodern, etc. etc. Hard to pin down Mieville's style, because he writes every book in a different genre. With the exception of the Bas-Lag novels.

    I recommend you start with "King Rat". That was the first book he wrote, and if you like that, you'll have no trouble with "Kraken".

    Folks who think that comics are meant for children and geeks crazy about super-heroes; these WILL surprise you.

    For fans of graphic novels, I cannot recommend these enough:

    I used to read 'raj comics' a lot when I was a kid. Loved the 'India Authentic' series from Virgin comics; too bad they discontinued Ramayana 3392 A.D and 'The Sadhu'. Among DC and Marvel- I only follow Batman, Wolverine and Deadpool.
