From official release/information:
The Etched City, the debut novel from Australian writer K.J. Bishop, is a rich meal in every sense of the word. A vivid, elegant, disturbing and challenging work, it represents the latest from the stable of writers who have come to be referred to as the New Weird. Bishop joins authors such as China Miéville and Jeff Vandermeer, whose writing has transcended conventional genre labels and carried Fantasy and Science Fiction into the realms of "respectable" literature. And Bishop's novel is very respectable indeed.
