This week, multiple award-winning writer China Mieville discusses Railsea, his delirious homage to Herman Melville.

This is, effectively, China’s second “sea story” for Arc: in our launch issue, we  arranged for him to visit Wood’s Hole biological research station in Massachusetts. to meet cephalopods and the men and women who study them and attempt to measure their strange, alien intelligence.

You can read his version of the encounter in Arc 1.1; see for details.
