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.
Editors Note 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.
