Kraken's China Mieville on "Five Underrated Literary Cephalopods"

Those of you who remember with fondness China Mieville's guest blogging on Omnivoracious and his award-winning novel The City & the City from last year will be delighted to know that he has a new novel, Kraken, out this summer...and that he's kindly contributed his thoughts on five underrated literary cephalopods below the cut.

As for Kraken, any novel that involves odd squid cults, natural history museums, and talking tattoos sounds like great summer reading to me, and Entertainment Weekly just gave it an A-.
