From the beginning of the new century, there was the emergence of science fiction writers and their works in the sinophone world, which coincides with the rapid rise of China’s national power. In the Twenty-First Century Review, we invited eight well-known writers and critics to give in-depth observations on this new cultural phenomenon.
