VoK 347: Book Club #6 — Perdido Street Station


perdido

The VOK Book Club Crew gathers (actually gathered back in September 2015) to discuss China Mieville’s weird fiction masterpiece, “Perdido Street Station”.

Hosts Greg (claudiusthefool), Steven (SJLee), Brett (WhiteRaven), Alex (LuckyCharms), Amber (Amberrocks) & Zach (Alias) assemble to discuss the myriad inhabitants of New Crobuzon, it’s political structure, the true meaning of The Weaver’s ramblings, the effects of Dreamshit & just who the hell was Jack Half-A-Prayer.

Beware of spoilers for Perdido Street Station but not for the other books in the Bas-lag series.
