"The horizon was no longer tilted. Everyone got a clear view of heaven: just another ruin."
ur "Grave of the fireflies" av Cheng Jingbo, övers. Ken Liu
"When CCTV, China's largest state television broadcaster, tried to hold an interview series on the topic of science fiction, a hundred-plus studio audience members erupted into chants of, 'Eliminate human tyranny! The world belongs to Trisolaris!'—a quote from the novel. The two TV hosts were utterly flummoxed and didn't know what to do."
ur "The worst of all possible universes" av Liu Cixin
Denna essä, liksom novellen av Cheng som citeras ovan finns i Invisible planets: An Anthology of Contemporary Chinese Science Fiction in Translation, red. Ken Liu
