As most of you know, this month Uncanny Magazine is featuring Hao Jingfang’s novelette “Folding Beijing” as translated by Ken Liu. What you may not know is that it was a nominee for Best Short Story last year at the prestigious Chinese Xingyun (Nebula) Awards. Along with the Galaxy Award, this is one of the most prestigious honors in Chinese SF genre work.
“Folding Beijing” lost to “Smart Life” by Ping Zongqi, but this was, of course, still a tremendous honor for “Folding Beijing” to be nominated. We are extremely proud to be publishing it.
Here are Hao Jingfang and Ken Liu at the awards.
