Teaser Tuesday - Looking for Jake

As per my friend's suggestion, I'm reading more China Mieville. I don't know if I can read more, because I hear English books are very hard to find in Japan... Anyway, I'm now reading his short story collection, Looking for Jake. Today's teaser comes from the first story in the book:

"In Bhopal, Union Carbide vomited up a torturing, killing bile. In Chernobyl the fallout was a more insidious cellular terrorism.

And now, Kilburn errupts with vague entropy." (Page 11)
I know it's 3 sentences, but I didn't know which one to cut! I'm loving the writing in this book~
