Book Description: This collection includes stories by writers already familiar to Anglophone readers like Liu Cixin (author of the Hugo-winning Three-Body Problem) as well as newer writers beloved by fans in China like Chen Qiufan, Ma Boyong, Xia Jia, Hao Jingfang (author of the Hugo-winning “Folding Beijing”), Cheng Jingbo, and Tang Fei.
This is the first collection of contemporary Chinese short SF to be released by a major US genre imprint, and to place the works in context, I’ve written an introduction as well as solicited a few analytical essays.
