Update 8/9/2019: The Hidden Girl and Other Stories, my second short fiction collection, is coming from Saga Press (US) and Head of Zeus (UK) on February 25, 2020. This one will include a never-published novelette, an excerpt from the next Dandelion Dynasty book, and a selection of my favorite stories.
Update 7/16/2019: The Redemption of Time, Baoshu’s paraquel of the Three-Body series by Liu Cixin, is out. If you are a hardcore fan of the original series, this fanfic will be a lot of fun.
Update 5/1/2019: Waste Tide, Chen Qiufan’s debut novel, translated by me, is out! A post-cyberpunk eco-thriller about the struggle for the soul of a people in the world’s trash heap, Chen’s novel is packed with unforgettable images and big ideas.
Update 3/16/2019: “Good Hunting,” which is available in my collection, The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories, has been adapted into an animated short as part of Netflix’s Love, Death & Robots series. The short (and the series as a whole) features the work of some wonderful creators. Enjoy!
