Reviews

"Vibrant collection... these are tales rich with lush language, inventive premises, and heartbreaking storytelling." --Mary Robinette Kowal

"These stories, along with the rest of the anthology, represent the best in both science fiction and works in translation, detailing situations that appear alien on the surface but deftly reframe contemporary issues to give readers a new view of familiar human experiences.A phenomenal anthology of short speculative fiction." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Greatly varied in theme and approach, all of these stories impress with their visionary sweep and scope...superb compilation." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"With stories ranging over social control, world-building rats and redundant robots who have outlived the humans who made them, this is a collection that will stimulate and delight" --Daily Mail


'A wonderful collection, it's thoughtful and entertaining fiction that as a western reader opens your eyes to science fiction written by a different, rich culture. My favourite short story collection of the year" --SF Book Reviews

"Dreamlike and hypnotic, evocative and inspiring'" --The Bookbag

"There is fabulous variety in this book, ranging from hard Science Fiction to near-future social Science Fiction ... a fine collection" --SF Crowsnest
