The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories 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), and the most awarded story in science fiction and fantasy history, The Paper Menagerie – the only story ever to win a Nebula, Hugo and World Fantasy best short fiction award.

A must-have for every science fiction and fantasy fan,
this beautiful book is an anthology to savor.

Peer & Press 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.

Starburst Magazine

Some of the stories are head-spinningly fantastic and almost surreal in their inventiveness.

Irish Times

Liu’s imagery never ceases to impress; he combines interesting backdrops to accentuate a whole host of intricate reactions, making him a true master of emotion and authenticity…  The Paper Menagerie will cement Liu as a once-in-a-lifetime author.  Certainly his work is both stimulating and intoxicating and is the catalyst that sees contemporary Chinese fiction propelled to the forefront of sci-fi.
