Prompted by the news that leading Chinese authors of science fiction are demanding new leadership for Science Fiction World, the countries biggest publication, I went looking for stories by Chinese SF authors.
(Will this rebellion, I wonder, incite similar Coup d’Etat in Western SF publications?)
(Unlikely, as Western editors are not government appointed.Imagine if they were? Who might be assigned such a job? Would they want it?!)
I found From Ball Lightning by Liu Xixin. And what I found was splendid. Truly, one of the best SF stories I have read in a very long time. (To be expected, as Liu Xixin is oneof China’s most successful SF writers) Beautiful, poetic, witty, profound, elegant, intelligent, literary, conceptual. Really magnificent!
So, people, anyone know where I can find more like this?
