China Miéville

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - 2016 Preview Essential Films -

In a re­mote house, a lonely boy who’s wit­nessed a trau­matic event dreams of safety. A knock on his door by a punc­til­ious stranger ini­tially seems to of­fer sal­va­tion, but does it? Miéville’s new novella, which ex­plores themes of iden­tity and mem­ory, con­firms the new se­ri­ous­ness in his work ev­i­dent in re­cent short sto­ries. In a Kafkaesque fash­ion, be afraid.
