Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The bulk of the collection is made up of linked stories dealing with various versions of a gradually depopulated post-Singularity Earth…Other stories such as ‘Seven Birthdays’ and ‘Altogether Elsewhere, Vast Herds of Reindeer’ chronicle the lives of a completely digital humanity as they journey into the depths of virtual worlds and the farthest reaches of space. While most of the selections are overwhelmingly sf, there are a few stories for fans of Liu’s ‘silkpunk’ fantasy such as the multi-dimensional Tang dynasty assassins of ‘The Hidden Girl,’ as well as the shape-shifting magic of the title characters in ‘Grey Rabbit, Crimson Mare, and Coal Leopard.’” Bookist
“Liu’s short stories explore the nature of identity, consciousness, and autonomy in hostile and chaotic worlds.” Kirkus Reviews
“Cycles of violence, unquiet ghosts, and troubled parent-child relationships pervade…Liu’s dexterous prose is on display throughout…At their best, these stories inject high-minded scientific concepts with deeper themes.” Publishers Weekly
