Looking For Jake

A-

The 14 stories in Looking For Jake include a previously unpublished revenge thriller set in the fantastical Perdido Street Station universe, a short comic, and a 63-page postapocalyptic war novella. Two-time Arthur C. Clarke award winner China Miéville (Iron Council) recycles plenty more of his terrifying industrial wastelands in this collection. Most feature victims of a nameless fiend that appears variously as cracks in a wall and a shadowy Web-based charity. And, just like the poor saps in these tales, readers will be both riveted and repelled by the mystery.
