It's been awhile, I know.
I took an unusually long time to finish Perdido Street Station. And I still don't feel like I've had enough time to digest it to justify a full post about it. In short, for now, I recommend it for SF and Horror fans looking for something new and original. More to come later.
Also more to come later on The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher, which I just finished today.
Starting Snow Crash in February may be putting my Stephenson goal in jeopardy.
