Pathlight is a magazine of Chinese fiction and poetry in English translation.
The Spring 2013 edition is themed around "The Future": stories about the
future of China, the future of technology, and the future of individual
lives. Stories by Liu Cixin, Hao Jingfang, and Xing He explore worlds
where human genetics have become mankind's plaything. Professor Wu Yan
provides an overview of Chinese science fiction. New stories from Han
Shaogong and Can Xue lie at opposite ends of the spectrum between the
prosaic and the dreamlike.
This issue's poetry section is curated by Chinese poet Yi Sha, and
features young Chinese poets that have been selected for his influential
New Poetry Canon series.
