A British author who writes in a genre that has been dubbed “the new weird” is set to deliver the Richard W. Gunn Memorial Lecture at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 24, at Alderson Auditorium in the Kansas Union.
China Miéville is scheduled to speak on “Cognition as Ideology: A Dialectic of Science-Fiction Theory.” His writings, including the novel “Perdido Street Station,” have combined urban fantasy with science fiction.
Why is none of this stuff ever near me? I managed to have the worst luck ever. LOL.
