About The Book
Sixteen short stories and novellas from China’s groundbreaking science fiction writers, edited and translated by award-winning author Ken Liu.
The Broken Stars anthology features works of hard science fiction, cyberpunk, science fantasy, and space opera, as well as genres with deeper ties to Chinese culture: alternate Chinese history, chuanyue time travel, satire with historical and contemporary allusions.
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.
By turns dazzling, melancholy and thought-provoking, Broken Stars celebrates the vibrancy and diversity of SFF voices emerging from China.
