The first collection of Ken Liu's multi-award-winning science fiction and fantasy short stories includes 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.

Synopsis

The Paper Menagerie by Ken Liu

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).

Reviews

'Each of the fifteen stories in this collection is a jewel of fantastical storytelling, written by a man who not only knows how to convey complex and fascinating scientific and philosophical ideas but who is also able to transform those ideas, and use them to highlight the beauty and fragility of the human condition. It is a genuine work of art, a complete joy to read, and very very highly recommended'
