520 8  Yes, but what is Perdido Street Station about? To 
       oversimplify: the eccentric scientist Isaac Dan der 
       Grimnebulin is hired to restore the power of flight to a 
       cruelly de-winged birdman. Isaac's secret lover is Lin, an
       artist of the khepri, a humano-insectoid race; theirs is a
       forbidden relationship. Lin is hired (rather against her 
       will) by a mysterious crime boss to capture his horrifying
       likeness in the unique khepri art form. Isaac's quest for 
       flying things to study leads to verification of his 
       controversial unified theory of the strange sciences of 
       his world. It also brings him an odd, unknown grub stolen 
       from a secret government experiment so perilous it is sold
       to a ruthless drug lord--the same crime boss who hired 
       Lin. The grub emerges from its cocoon, becomes an 
       extraordinarily dangerous monster, and escapes Isaac's lab
       to ravage New Crobuzon, even as his discovery becomes 
       known to a hidden, powerful, and sinister intelligence. 
       Lin disappears and Isaac finds himself pursued by the 
       monster, the drug lord, the government and armies of New 
       Crobuzon, and other, more bizarre factions, not all 
       confined to his world.
