'The king of speculative short stories delivers his most exquisite miniatures and a brand new novella' Waterstones Weekly

'In his cyberpunk-tinged visions, our homes are so often on fire – but the flames illuminate our difficult present in unexpected ways. A hugely accomplished collection' SFX

'Ken Liu's latest twist-filled sci-fi and fantasy anthology emphasises family and shared humanity ... The 17 stories of The Hidden Girl come out amid high expectations. Liu not only meets these with equanimity, but also sends his stories jetting off into new dimensions' Straits Times

'With its themes of assimilation and breaking free, of colonial and other yokes, the immigrant experience feels familiar, yet strange, in the hands of Lanzhou-born, US-based Liu, a master also at translating Chinese science fiction. His ideas about different worlds will transport you' South China Morning Post
