New Crobuzon Hero

New Crobuzon is the largest city of Bas-Lag, and the setting for most of two novels by China Miéville.
The genre is New Weird and can be thought of as a darker, more grotesque version of Steampunk in this case. It has also been remarked that these books could be classed as "Fantasy Cyberpunk".

This is a fansite constructed in hommage to the work of China Miéville in order to bring his work to a different audience. All material on this website is obtained from books that I own or from websites about these books that are freely accessable to the public. I have merely compiled them together, sliced off bits and moved them to fit. Adding rules where necessary. I have not as yet added any non-canon information, although I have extrapolated some of the implications in the books.
