LOCUS AWARD FINALIST FOR BEST ANTHOLOGY

Sixteen short stories from China's groundbreaking science fiction writers, edited and translated by award-winning author Ken Liu.

In Hugo award-winner Liu Cixin's 'Moonlight,' a man is contacted by three future versions of himself, each trying to save their world from destruction. Hao Jingfang's 'The New Year Train' sees 1,500 passengers go missing on a train that vanishes into space. In the title story by Tang Fei, a young girl is shown how the stars can reveal the future.

In addition, three essays explore the history and rise of Chinese science fiction publishing, contemporary Chinese fandom, and how the growing interest in Chinese SF has impacted writers who had long laboured in obscurity.

Rezensionen
'A good mix of well-established authors and new voices ... While the styles on show are disparate, one thread that links many stories is the way they engage intelligently with Chinese myths and history ... This book gives a wonderful insight into the worldview and imagination of its smart and thoughtful writers' Big Issue
