Veldt to scrub to fields to farms to these first tumbling houses that rise from the earth. (from the first line)
In the sprawling gothic city of New Crobuzon, a stranger requests the services of Isaac, an overweight and slightly eccentric scientist. But it is an impossible request--that of flight--and in the end Isaac's attempts will only succeed in unleashing a dark force upon the city.
From the Publisher:
In the squalid, gothic city of New Crobuzon, a mysterious half-human, half-bird stranger comes to Isaac, a gifted but eccentric scientist, with a request to help him fly, but Isaac's obsessive experiments and attempts to grant the request unleash a terrifying dark force on the entire city. Winner of the Arthur C. Clarke, British Fantasy, & British Science Fiction Awards. Reprint.
Annotation:
The stories of an outcast artist commissioned to sculpt the face of a dangerous criminal and a renegade scientist hired to restore wings to a man whose original ones were removed as punishment are entwined on the grimy streets of an enormous, self-contained city whose center is a massive train terminal, the Perdido Street Station.
