China Mieville, guest-blogging on Amazon’s Omnivoracious, drops some ideas he wants other people to write books around. Two of the ideas are meta-ideas. (Of course they are.)

Been having a hard time getting into The City & The City, actually. But I haven’t given up. Mieville’s books can be hard to kick-start but once you get ‘em going… what a ride.

Even though it is interesting, there is so much extra stuff/fluff/HISTORY in it that it makes it hard to remember that there is actually a story behind all the education stephenson's droppin'.
