ABOUT THE AUTHOR
After graduating from Peking University, Bao Shu obtained a Master's degree in philosophy from KU Leuven, Belgium (a degree that is very handy for science fiction). Working as a freelance writer in China, he has published four novels and over 30 novellas, novelettes and short stories since 2010. His best-known works include Three Body X: Aeon of Contemplation (an authorized sequel to Liu Cixin's Three Body trilogy), Ruins of Time (winner of the 2014 Chinese Nebula Award for Best Novel), and "What Has Passed Shall in Kinder Light Appear" (English translation in F&SF March/April 2015). He now lives in Xi’an.
His novelette, "Everybody Loves Charles," won three important awards this year: the 2015 Chinese SF Galaxy Award for Best Novelette, the 2015 Chinese SF Nebula Silver Award for Best Novelette, and Chinese SF Coordinate Award for Best Novelette.
