Broken Stars

by Ken Liu
Release date: February 19, 2019
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, anthology
Tags: translation

Edited and translated by Ken Liu.

Here are sixteen short stories from China's groundbreaking SFF writers, edited and translated by award-winning author Ken Liu.

Including 'Moonlight' by Cixin Liu and 'The New Year Train' by Hao Jingfang – both Hugo award-winners – this anthology features stories firmly entrenched in subgenres familiar to Western SFF readers such as hard SF, cyberpunk, science fantasy, and space opera, while also including stories that showcase deeper ties to Chinese culture: alternative Chinese history, chuanyue time travel and satire with historical and contemporary allusions that are likely unfamiliar to Western readers.

In addition, three essays explore the history and rise of Chinese SFF publishing, contemporary Chinese fandom, and how the growing interest in Chinese SFF 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 and transforming the Western literary landscape.
