Kraken: An Anatomy by China Miéville 


XL trade paperback [9" x 6"] in very good condition.

Shelf wear and some minor creasing to cover.  Reads good as new w/ a hint of tanning.   

With this outrageous new novel, China Miéville has written one of the strangest, funniest, and flat-out scariest books you will read this—or any other—year. A dark urban fantasy thriller from one of the all-time masters of the genre.

Deep in the research wing of the Natural History Museum is a prize specimen, something that comes along much less often than once in a lifetime: a perfect, and perfectly preserved, giant squid. But what does it mean when the creature suddenly and impossibly disappears?

For curator Billy Harrow it's the start of a headlong pitch into a London of warring cults, surreal magic, apostates and assassins. It might just be that the creature he's been preserving is more than a biological rarity: there are those who are sure it's a god.

A god that someone is hoping will end the world.
