    Description

    From New York Times best-selling author Cixin Liu comes a short story collection of captivating visions of the future and incredible re-imaginings of the past. 

    In To Hold Up the Sky, Cixin Liu takes us across time and space, from a rural mountain community where elementary students must use physics to prevent an alien invasion; to coal mines in northern China where new technology will either save lives of unleash a fire that will burn for centuries; to a time very much like our own, when superstring computers predict our every move; to 10,000 years in the future, when humanity is finally able to begin anew; to the very collapse of the universe itself. 

    Written between 1999 and 2017 and never before published in English, these stories came into being during decades of major change in China and will take you across time and space through the eyes of one of science fiction's most visionary writers. 

    Experience the limitless and pure joy of Cixin Liu's writing and imagination in this stunning collection.

    Stories included are:

    "Contraction"

    "Full Spectrum Barrage Jamming"

    "The Village Teacher"

    "Fire in the Earth"

    "Time Migration"

    "Ode to Joy"

    "Mirror"

    "Sea of Dreams"

    "Cloud of Poems"

    "The Thinker"

    This program is read by: Vikas Adam, Feodor Chin, Greg Chun, Robert Fass, Catherine Ho, Natalie Naudus, Brian Nishii, P. J. Ochlan, Emily Woo Zeller, and Nancy Wu

    Superlatives all around!

    Happy to have been introduced to this author through the $5 Audible deal. Would have still been thrilled if I had used a credit. I would love to read The Three Body Problem as well, but it isn’t available to download in Mexico (yet?).

    My favorite story in this collection was the very last. A wonderful journey getting there too. Kudos to the author and the narrators! Thank you!

    Disappointing

    I loved TBP trilogy but this was so inspiring.
    Some of the narrator's were awful.

    One of the best scifi short story collections ever

    Stories (in translation) and narration were well matched. So imaginative and poetic, with a narrative scake from the galactic to the intimate. Highly recommended.

    Great and Entertaining Collection of short stories

    Very enjoyable, especially the Mirror. Creative interpretation of the modern physics and cosmology concepts in these stories.

    I really wanted to love this book

    I love Cixin Liu. I enjoyed everything I read from him. Not So much this one.

    The good:
    You can trust Cixin Liu to have original, complex ideas that make you think "this could totally be possible". The stories in this book carry the unique and interesting quality I love. All stories made me wish there would be a sequel, full length book.

    The could-be-better:
    While the short stories are interesting, they felt to me a bit "unfinished". Almost like they were under developed pitches/pilots for full length books. And the narration drove me crazy. Why have a different narrator for every short story? It takes me time to get used to a style and a voice. I would prefer to have just one.

    Great writing! Mostly great performance.

    This book is narrated by several people... some of whom should not be narrators. For the most part, however, the content makes it well worth it. Liu is an excellent sci-fi author.

    Excellent

    If you can get over Americans and NATO being the bad guys in a couple of the stories, there’s some excellent thought-provoking sci-fi here.
