Editorial Reviews

Review

“Several [stories] capable of piercing the heart.” ― Kirkus Reviews

Liu’s strong sentences and intelligent what-ifs will appeal to fans of Asimov-ian science fiction ― Publishers Weekly

A Most Anticipated of 2020 book for WBUR’s The ARTery and LitHub

The Hidden Girl and Other Stories explores ideas such as the intersection of tradition and progress, the fallibility of memory and the essence of what it means to be human.”—WBUR

“Woah man, deep...Let the marble that is your (non-uploaded) brain roll around in that cosmic Klein bottle as you make your way through the book.”—WIRED

"[O]ne of the best sci-fi writers around.”—AUSTIN AMERICAN-STATESMAN

“[A]mong the most memorable creations of Liu’s career...poignant and powerful.”—AV Club

“Ken Liu is the kind of prodigious talent who makes mere mortals melt in despair at ever matching his accomplishments...including almost single-handedly launching a boom in Chinese SF translated for English-language readers. And now here he is with a magnificent new story collection.”—LOCUS

“Like Octavia Butler, Liu probes our ethical wounds, examining injustice and oppression from some uncomfortable angles.” —Nisi Shawl, The Seattle Times

“Discover one of science fiction’s stars.”—Charlie Jane Anders, Hugo Award–winning author of All the Birds in the Sky

“Liu’s stories went deep into my marrow, laying bare painful truths, meticulously slicing through the layers of pearl to find the grain of sand at its heart.”—NPR

“Ken Liu is among the most important figures to emerge in science fiction in the last decade or so.”—Chicago Tribune

“Ken Liu’s output is as amazing as his stories.”—The Boston Globe

“Liu’s writing...brims not only with literal spirits of the dead, but with ghosts in the machine, ghosts of our past selves, and ghosts of futures that never came to pass. Hidden Girl examines–through narratives full of magic, extant innovations, or technologies so speculative they may as well be magic–how we remain connected to ourselves during relentless change.”—Harvard Magazine
