Something to Amuse Myself

This is what I do to laugh at people who both work for and are customers of the company for which I also work. I have been careful not to post too much, if at all, and only in generic terms when I do. The average wireless phone customer is pretty clueless. Oh, did I actually type that? Sorry. ;)

As a huge fan of Miéville's previous two novels centered in and around the fictional city New Crobuzon, I am chomping at the bit to read his latest novel, Iron Council.

A quick excerpt from Amazon's review:

China Miéville's novel Iron Council is the tumultuous story of the "Perpetual Train." Born from monopolists' greed and dispatched to tame the western lands beyond New Crobuzon, the train is itself the beginnings of an Iron Council formed in the fire of frontier revolt against the railroad's masters. From the wilderness, the legend of Iron Council becomes the spark uniting the oppressed and brings barricades to the streets of faraway New Crobuzon.

Miéville's universe is based on what many people have termed as "steam-punk" but it his writing is not remotely cold nor alienating like much of the cyber-punk genre. Check his stuff out; it is well worth the read.

Heh heh heh. Here's a well-established online comic strip that is based on Warhammer 40K. Hilarious, I tell you! What, you don't believe me? Check it out yourself.
