Review

"This collection is essential for anyone interested in the diverse and engaging possibilities of fantasy and science fiction." --Booklist

"This fascinating collection addresses issues of immigration, dual cultures, and ethnic issues through genre devices such as ghosts, steampunk robots, and planetary exploration. SF readers looking to discover new voices will enjoy this volume that reflects the eclecticism of Asian culture." --Library Journal

"There's a lot of good reading to be found in Where the Stars Rise." --Locus (Gardner Dozois)

"Majority of the stories being either good or very good page-turners." --Tangent

"Where the Stars Rise is a wonderfully diverse collection of Asian science fiction and fantasy that deserves to be on the shelves of anyone serious about being well-read in the genre. Like all good anthologies, there's something here for almost anyone, while at the same time the collection has a distinctive character that's all its own." --SF Bluestocking

"A wealth of stories running the gamut from poignant to mindblowing, rewarding journeys both faraway and familiar." --Aliette de Bodard, Nebula Award-winning author of the Dominion of the Fallen saga

"Where the Stars Rise is a hell of a lot of fun. Great writers, magnificent storytelling, and worlds I wanted to spend a lot more time in--no matter how dangerous they were. I had a blast reading it." --Rob Boffard, author of the Outer Earth series (Tracer, Zero-G, Impact)
