Today I've posted over at The Hog's Head, where instead of reviewing China Miéville's Un Lun Dun, I linked to an article he wrote about Tolkien, made a few comments, and asked for discussion.
Feel free to check out his post; it's got a lot of fascinating thoughts. And as a wordsmith, I have to applaud his choices to use a phrase like "the tragedy of the creeping tawdry quotidian" and then refer to something as "totally cool" in the next paragraph. Anybody who can pull that off is awesome.
Review of Un Lun Dun coming another day.
