I’m Waiting For You by Kim Bo-Young

A Times Science Fiction Book of The Month - April 2021


A stunning collection of short fiction by one of South Korea’s most treasured writers, available in English for the first time.

In the title story, an engaged couple working in distant corners of the galaxy plan to arrive on Earth simultaneously and walk down the aisle together.  But small incidents wreak havoc on their vast journeys, pushing the date of their wedding far into the future.  As centuries pass on Earth and the land and climate change, one thing is constant: the desire of the lovers to be together.

Through two pairs of interlinked stories, Kim explores the driving forces of humanity – love, hope, creation, destruction, and the very meaning of existence.

Peer & Press Reviews

Kim Bo-Young has given us a timely reminder that longing and heartbreak can be as infinite as the universe, but also just as lovely.

Micaiah Johnson, author of The Space Between Worlds

Her fiction is a breath-taking piece of a cinematic art itself.  Reminiscent of the world we experienced in The Matrix, Inception, and Dark City, still it leads us to this entirely original structure, which is a ground-breaking, mystic literary and cinematic experience.  Indeed, powerful and graceful.

Bong Joon-ho, Oscar-winning director of Parasite

A beautiful, earnest exploration of the mind, body, and spirit across time and space.  These stories will break your heart, then lovingly knit it back together again.

Marina J. Lostetter, author of Noumenon
