"Here are thirteen short stories from the new frontiers of Chinese sciencefiction, selected and translated by Hugo, Nebula, Locus and World FantasyAward-winner Ken Liu.Hao Jingfang's Hugo-Award-Winning 'Folding Beijing' takes place in a near-future dystopia where the title city's buildings fold into and out of the earth,allowing three different strata of society to spend part of the day above ground.

Xia Jia's 'Night Journey of the Dragon-Horse' describes a post-apocalypticworld where machines have outlived the humans who engineered them. In'Taking Care of God' by Liu Cixin-author of The Three-Body Problem, the firsttranslated novel to win the Hugo Award-a race of white-haired, white-robedbeings arrive on Earth, claiming they are God, creators of everything who nowwant to spend their retirement years with us...
