Mr Mieville again at Omnivoracious – Neither a Contract Nor a Promise: Five Movements To Watch Out For – I like to sit with my Oxford Concise close at hand whenever I read a Mieville-esque piece. No one else makes me feel quite so much like Ralph Wiggam and I often mumble to myself  ‘I have a cat called Mittens’, whilst mid-Mieville. On the really big words I may come out with ‘My boyfriend is tall.’ *tilts head, blinks*
