Anne Rice takes us to the world of fifteenth century Rome, a city of domes and rooftop gardens, rising towers and crosses beneath an ever shifting layer of clouds; familiar hills and tall pines, of Michelangelo and Raphael, of the Inquisition and of Leo X, second son of a Medici.
PRIMER VOLUMEN DE LA TRILOGIA BAS-LAG. «La estación de la calle Perdido transporta al lector, a lo largo de más de ochocientas páginas rebosantes de imaginación, a Nueva Corbuzon, una metrópoli bulliciosa y brutalmente estratificada: un Parlamento compuesto por miembros de las elites, y sostenido por la fuerza militar, rige los destinos de una población marginal, ingente y prácticamente paria, de drogodependientes, prostitutas, artesanos y delincuentes. Sin ser del todo un libro steampunk, La estación de la calle Perdidotiene algo de parábola victoriana, de versión sci-fi de Oliver Twist en la manera de describir la suciedad y la miseria en las calles. A lo que Miéville añadía un ingrediente más: la xenofobia.» El Mundo


Beneath the towering bleached ribs of a dead, ancient beast lies New Crobuzon, a squalid city where humans, Re-mades, and arcane races live in perpetual fear of Parliament and its brutal militia. The air and rivers are thick with factory pollutants and the strange effluents of alchemy, and the ghettos contain a vast mix of workers, artists, spies, junkies, and whores. In New Crobuzon, the unsavory deal is stranger to none—not even to Isaac, a brilliant scientist with a penchant for Crisis Theory.

A magnificent fantasy rife with scientific splendor, magical intrigue, and wonderfully realized characters, told in a storytelling style in which Charles Dickens meets Neal Stephenson, Perdido Street Station offers an eerie, voluptuously crafted world that will plumb the depths of every reader's imagination.

"Miville's canvas is so breathtakingly broad that the details of individual subplots and characters sometime lose their definition. But it is also generous enough to accommodate large dollops of aesthetics, scientific discussion and quest fantasy in an impressive and ultimately pleasing epic." -Publishers Weekly
