Head of Zeus
The Three-Body Problem Trilogy
The Three-Body Problem Trilogy: Remembrance of Earth's Past by Cixin Liu, translated by Ken Liu, translated by Joel Martinsen
 The Three-Body Problem

Read the award-winning, critically acclaimed, multi-million-copy-selling science-fiction phenomenon – soon to be a Netflix Original Series from the creators of Game of Thrones.

Not only a remembrance of Earth's past but also a reflection on humanity's future, the trilogy weaves a complex web of physics, philosophy and history, taking the reader from the Cultural Revolution to the heat death of the universe.

By turns sombre, despairing, lyrical, and hopeful, the trilogy comprises the Hugo and Galaxy Award-winning The Three-Body Problem, The Dark Forest and Death's End. Across the series, Cixin Liu asks the desperate, melancholic question of our time: will humanity reach for the stars or die in its cradle?

Discover the whole trilogy in a new deluxe flexibound omnibus edition.
