9781784978815: Invisible Planets

Award-winning translator and author Ken Liu presents a collection of short speculative fiction from China. Some stories have won awards (including Hao Jingfang’s Hugo-winning novella, Folding Beijing); some have been included in various 'Year's Best' anthologies; some have been well reviewed by critics and readers; and some are simply Ken's personal favorites. Many of the authors collected here (with the obvious exception of New York Times bestseller Liu Cixin’s two stories) belong to the younger generation of 'rising stars'. In addition, three essays at the end of the book explore Chinese science fiction. Liu Cixin's essay, The Worst of All Possible Universes and The Best of All Possible Earths, gives a historical overview of SF in China and situates his own rise to prominence as the premier Chinese author within that context. Chen Qiufan's The Torn Generation gives the view of a younger generation of authors trying to come to terms with the tumultuous transformations around them. Finally, Xia Jia, who holds the first Ph.D. issued for the study of Chinese SF, asks What Makes Chinese Science Fiction Chinese?

About the Author:

KEN LIU (translator) is a writer, lawyer, and computer programmer. His short story "The Paper Menagerie" was the first work of fiction ever to sweep the Nebula, Hugo, and World Fantasy Awards.

Review:

Ken Liu’s smooth translation makes this a must-read for any who truly wish to explore bold, new perspectives. ―David Brin, bestselling author of Existence

Ken Liu’s translation is both smooth and unintrusive. ―Mike Resnick, multiple Hugo Award winning author

Told in Liu’s graceful, intelligent, and literate prose, the novel is a sumptuous Epic feast. ―SFF World

"These stories, along with the rest of the anthology, represent the best in both science fiction and works in translation, detailing situations that appear alien on the surface but deftly reframe contemporary issues to give readers a new view of familiar human experiences.A phenomenal anthology of short speculative fiction." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"This stellar anthology of 13 stories selected and translated by Liu (the Dandelion Dynasty series) brings the best of Chinese science fiction to anglophones... Although greatly varied in theme and approach, all of these stories impress with their visionary sweep and scope. The inclusion of three essays on the significance of science fiction to China and its writers underscores the thoughtfulness that Liu put into curating this superb compilation." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

Descripción Head of Zeus, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. UK Airports ed. Language: English . Brand New Book. Here are thirteen short stories from the new frontiers of Chinese science fiction, selected and translated by Hugo, Nebula, Locus and World Fantasy Award-winner Ken Liu. Hao Jingfang s Hugo-Award-Winning Folding Beijing takes place in a near-future dystopia where the title city s buildings fold into and out of the earth, allowing three different strata of society to spend part of the day above ground. Xia Jia s Night Journey of the Dragon-Horse describes a post-apocalyptic world where machines have outlived the humans who engineered them. In Taking Care of God by Liu Cixin - author of The Three-Body Problem, the first translated novel to win the Hugo Award - a race of white-haired, white-robed beings arrive on Earth, claiming they are God, creators of everything who now want to spend their retirement years with us. Including an introduction by Ken Liu and three essays exploring Chinese science fiction, this is a phenomenal collection of strange worlds, hypnotic landscapes and unbridled imagination.
