Tomorrow I’ll be joining author and Co-founder of CreateThinkDo Yen Ooi and translator and writer Xueting Christine Ni at Nine Worlds to talk about Chinese Science Fiction. Come along and join us if you can.
Exploring Chinese Science Fiction
Yen Ooi, Michael Rowley, Xueting Christine Ni
Chinese science fiction has recently been propelled into a celebrity status due to its popularity at the Hugo Awards. Why have we not come across Chinese science fiction before this, and is it any different from science fiction from the rest of the world? This session will seek to explore the developments of Chinese science fiction, while considering its influences on and from the genre internationally.
