  1. Congrats to everone involved!

    Im surprised by the choice of Greg Bear- obviosly a good author, but not the first name I would think of? Of course I dont know the background of this award/choice and would welcome further info 🙂

  2. I think Greg Bear’s Eon trilogy has recently been published in Chinese. If Three Body is very popular in China, I can see Eon going down very well as well.
