If so you might like this new weird anthology as a place to start, has quite a few different authors (including K J Bishop & Jay Lake) so you can get a feel for a few options. I'd also recommend Jeff Vandermeer's Ambergris books, another great city setting, strange mushroom people & a bit of an obsession with squid, along with probably the only really good exploration of the arts & culture scene in a fantasy world (which generally gets glossed over in favour of sword fights).
Plus Felix Gilman's novels Thunderer & Gears of the City, which are critically well received new weird stuff regularly compared to Mieville (and which I've probably already spammed too much on here so will leave it at that).
