* PurpleProse: Miéville writes beautiful prose, if a bit purple. There's a fine line between "purple" and "exquisite." He has got a lot less purple recently -- more a pale lilac. At least he's stopped using 'ineluctable' every ten pages.

He purposefully avoids writing [[Creator/JRRTolkien Tolkien-esque]] fantasy, preferring to [[DeconstructorFleet invent his own sorts of worlds and fantasy creatures]]. Miéville used to be a huge DungeonsAndDragons fan, and occasionally references it in his works.
