New Artwork Revealed for China Miéville

Last night, Pan Macmillan unveiled the full re-jacketed backlist of China’s books, to be published alongside his new novel, Embassytown, on 6th May 2011.

Crush Creative designed the covers and they look truly amazing! I can already see the fans wanting to own the entire catalogue.

They all look sublime but if I have to pick the best one, in my opinion, it would be the cover of Iron Council. What do you think?

Embassytown: a city of contradictions on the outskirts of the universe.

Avice is an immerser, a traveller on the immer, the sea of space and time below the everyday, now returned to her birth planet. Here on Arieka, humans are not the only intelligent life, and Avice has a rare bond with the natives, the enigmatic Hosts - who cannot lie.

Only a tiny cadre of unique human Ambassadors can speak Language, and connect the two communities. But an unimaginable new arrival has come to Embassytown. And when this Ambassador speaks, everything changes.

Catastrophe looms. Avice knows the only hope is for her to speak directly to the alien Hosts.

And that is impossible.


  1. Yes, as far as I know it is UK only.

  2. I like the books I own already much better! Some are American and some are UK (I purchased the UK versions from Amazon UK).
