More than Pandas!

I recently released an episode of the podcast focusing on science fiction from China. You can download that episode from your podcast manager or listen to it from here:

CWT Ep 148 “More than Pandas!”

In the last twenty years, Chinese Sci Fi has flourished across a range of media, spurred by successes like Liu Cixin’s Hugo Award-winning novel The Three-Body Problem, and this year’s Chinese funded and created movie The Wandering Earth. In this episode I talk to two writers: Chen Qiufan and Peng Simeng, and an editor, Gabrielle Wei of Science Fiction World, all based in China, to discuss the issues that are important to Chinese writers and to find out what opportunities writers from the West might have in this newly emerging market.
