Short stories are always great for poolside / vacation consumption and Invisible Planets is no exception. While it may not give you a full picture of what Chinese fiction is (how could it when so many authors have such diverse ideas - and across such a large country?) it does give you a sense of the ideas, culture and vision that many may have. Many of the stories are excellent and I'm finding that I am now looking up some of the authors to follow up-read their full-length novels. If you like science fiction, you like opening your mind to new things - I urge you to open a bit further and explore the Invisible Planets!
