The first collection of Ken Liu’s multi-award-winning science fiction and fantasy tales.
Ken Liu has published almost 100 short stories and won nearly every genre award in existence. Here, he has selected his 15 favourite stories, including The Man Who Ended History: A Documentary (Finalist for Hugo, Nebula, and Sturgeon Awards), Mono No Aware (Hugo Award winner), The Bookmaking Habits of Select Species (Nebula and Sturgeon award finalists), and the most awarded story in Science Fiction and Fantasy history, The Paper Menagerie – the only story ever to win the Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy awards.
‘Ken Liu has quickly become one of the most original and thought-provoking story writers of his generation. Deftly riffing off the power of narrative, this collection is as heartbreaking as it is charming.’
‘Had the fortune to obtain an advanced reader’s copy of The Paper Menagerie. One of the most impressive collections I’ve ever read. I’m in awe.’
‘The story not only moved me, but it shook me… He reminds us that at the heart of all fiction, even science fiction and fantasy, there is a story.’
