Sinopticon: A Celebration of Chinese Culture, which I have curated, translated and edited, is the sort of project I have been planning for a long time. Ever since I noticed China’s nascent genre fiction back in the 2000s, I have wanted to bring it Anglophone readers. Over the last two decades, it has been wonderful to see contemporary fiction, speculative fiction and online literature take off, blossom in China as well as around the world.
Luckily, my acceptance speech at the British Fantasy Awards was recorded. This recognition should also extend to the editors that saw the value of my work, the agents, companies and authors who embarked on this journey with me, the bloggers, reviewers and readers who picked up the book and spread the word. I hope this will enable me to have more opportunities of bringing you further fantastic works of Chinese contemporary literature.
