THE THREE-BODY PROBLEM.
Edition: First US printing (complete number line)
New York: TOR / Tom Doherty Associates, (2014) dj. Hardcover first edition - The first English language edition of this bestselling Chinese science fiction novel, winner in translation of the 2015 Hugo Award and very highly praised. To cite just a couple of examples, Kim Stanley Robinson stated: "It is wonderful to read this state-of-the-art example of Chinese science fiction, which sweeps from the historical trauma of the Cultural Revolution to the cosmic trauma of alien contact with an immense narrative energy. Ken Liu's excellent translation combines fluid clarity with a continuous view into Chinese worldviews, adding to the fun and making this the best kind of science fiction, familiar but strange all at the same time." and Mike Resnick said "The Three-Body Problem deserves all of its plaudits. It's an exceptional novel, and Ken Liu's translation is both smooth and unintrusive." Translator's postscript. 399 pp. ISBN: 978-0765377067.
