Oh I have familiar with him and I think he is a mixed bad but there are some who think is a genius. I like some but not all of his books. My favorite novel of his is Perdido Street Station which is what some call "urban fantasy" set in the city of New Crobuzon (loosely London). That was a really fun read. I also liked The City and the City but I suspect it won't be to everyone's liking. I also liked Iron Council, kind of, and The Scar, kind of. I hated Kraken. He is certainly has a unique writing style but sometimes borders on the pretentious and bloated.
