Hello,

I am a student of chinese studies here in Poland and I am writing a paper on Chinese Science Fiction. I always liked science fiction, I like China, so I chose this topic [Smile]

I wondered if anyy of you could help me out by giving links to some good pages about that- I would love them to be in English, because my Chinese is not that good. I am able to read though, so if you know a short but good article in Chinese, I would be very greatful.

I would also appreciate any suggestions about the most famous SF writers in China and their books (hopefully translated:)

Thanks a lot! I found some things, but you hatrackers usually know everything:)

This might be useful, it is a podcast though
http://popupchinese.com/lessons/sinica/science-fiction-in-china
quote:
Joining Kaiser this week is longtime Sinica stalwart Gady Epstein, who also happens to be the Beijing bureau chief for Forbes magazine. With them we have two genuine experts on Chinese science fiction. Our first guest is Stanley Chen (Chen Qiufan), Google employee and one of the leading new generation of Chinese science fiction writers. Joel Martinsen, one of the most informed Americans on the Chinese science fiction scene, is also in our studio to talk about what sets Chinese sci-fi apart from its Western counterpart.
