Cixin Liu is one of the most important voices in world Science Fiction. A bestseller in China, his novel, The Three-Body Problem, was the first translated work of SF ever to win the Hugo Award.

Here is the first collection of his short fiction: these stories, including five Chinese Galaxy Award-winners, form a blazingly original ode to planet earth – its pasts and its futures.

Liu's fictions take the reader to the edge of the universe and the end of time, to meet stranger fates than we could have ever imagined. With a melancholic and keen understanding of human nature, Liu's stories show humanity's attempts to reason, navigate and, above all, survive in a desolate cosmos.

    A pensive look crossed her face.

    ‘I have heard that not too long ago ants could read. Now, none of us remain who could study the old books,’ the first ant noted.

    ‘We have fallen. If it goes on like this, the ants will soon lose all their knowledge and become nothing but small, cave-dwelling, foraging insects,’ the other said dismally.

    ‘What would be wrong with that? In these hard times, knowing little would seem just as well to me,’ the first ant retorted, shrugging her antennae.

    Senator Belapi shook her head in disagreement. ‘Creativity and imagination? Humbug, Professor. Do you really consider those traits to be good things? It is precisely because of them that the dinosaurs are such neurotic beings, and it’s what makes their moods so volatile and unpredictable. They end up wasting their lives daydreaming, as they indulge their silly fantasies.’
