Han Song

Han Song

Han Song is one of China’s most prolific — and best, according to the Los Angeles Times — science fiction writers. His novels include Let’s Go Look for Aliens, about UFO-spotters in China, Manmade Man, about clones, and Subway. He has won multiple Galaxy Awards, China’s highest profile sci-fi prize, and is regularly cited as an influence by younger writers. Han also works at the state news agency Xinhua. According to Paper Republic, “It becomes clear, reading his writing, that science fiction is merely a slightly warped mirror with which to reflect modern Chinese society.”As a result, much of his work is banned in mainland China.
