China Mieville does a video tour for the BBC for the British Library's Science Fiction Exhibition in London. Wish I could see it in person! It's open to the public until September 25th.
Here's a link to the video, which mentions some older classics that I've never heard of, and may just have to read.
And thanks to Lou Anders at PYR who pointed this out on facebook.
Oh, and I've finished Mr. Mieville's Embassytown, so expect a review of that soon.
