[NEWS] Five sci-fi links: The Wandering Earth, hard SF, Le Guin, Vonda N. McIntyre, globalization

  • Slate makes a case for the importance of the new Chinese science-fiction film The Wandering Earth. I think I, too, want to go see it in theatres.
  • James Nicoll highlights five often overlooked hard science-fiction novels. (I agree with him entirely about China Mountain Zhang, one of my favourites.)
  • Charlie Jane Anders writes at Tor about the complexity and brilliance of Ursula K Le Guin’s Hainish cycle of novels.
  • This news about Vonda N. McIntyre, most famous to me for her Star Trek novels and her Starfarer series, saddens me.
  • Ryan Porter writes at the Toronto Star about the growth of non-Western influences in contemporary science fiction and fantasy.
