Staff Reviews

At it's most useful, science fiction and fantasy points to and expands on some new or problematic aspect of contemporary society. And few writers bring the issues and concerns of the real world into their imagined worlds as deftly as Liu, whose stories return ever again to the ideas around heritage, identity, personhood, and family. A unique talent.
