Regina Kanya Wang, Yen Ooi and Arthur Liu join Chris Garcia and James Bacon to co-edit an issue dedicated to Chinese science, science fiction, space and fandom, with over 20 articles and interviews, all both in Chinese and English in parallel text.
Featuring a stunning cover From Ocean in the Sky by Sharksden, there is a wide variety of articles, interviews and art.
