Waiting On Wednesday - The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories by Ken Liu

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories by Ken Liu
Expected publication: March 8th 2016 by Saga Press

A publishing event: Bestselling author Ken Liu selects his award-winning science fiction and fantasy tales for a groundbreaking collection—including a brand-new piece exclusive to this volume.

With his debut novel, The Grace of Kings, taking the literary world by storm, Ken Liu now shares his finest short fiction in The Paper Menagerie. This mesmerizing collection features all of Ken’s award-winning and award-finalist stories, including: “The Man Who Ended History: A Documentary” (Finalist for the Hugo, Nebula, and Theodore Sturgeon Awards), “Mono No Aware” (Hugo Award winner), “The Waves” (Nebula Award finalist), “The Bookmaking Habits of Select Species” (Nebula and Sturgeon award finalists), “All the Flavors” (Nebula award finalist), “The Litigation Master and the Monkey King” (Nebula Award finalist), and the most awarded story in the genre’s history, “The Paper Menagerie” (The only story to win the Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy awards).

A must-have for every science fiction and fantasy fan, this beautiful book is an anthology to savor.


As a huge fan of The Grace of Kings - one of my top 3 reads of last year - I'm anxious to dig into Liu's past and explore some of the short fiction that has made him such a force in the genre.

  2. I've not read any of his books, so this would be a great place to start.

  3. Sounds like a good place to start reading if you want to try the author's books. I can't help but question the cover art choice, though.

  5. Ah, last I heard the release for this book was late 2015 and I was just thinking, I wonder why we didn't hear more about it. I guess the date was pushed back.
