A new anthology of international fantastic literature (Italy, China, Japan, Singapore) was published in Italy on Friday, Feb 11th. It has included three Chinese scifi stories: "La tomba" by Qiufan Chen (“坟”,陈楸帆), "La fine del mondo" by Fei Dao (“一个末世的故事”,飞氘), "La citta' eterne" by Haitian Pan ("永恒之城", 潘海天).
In this essay, Joel Martinsen gives thought-provoking comments on some "soft" Chinese science fiction novels uttering social critique in an amazing way.
