One of my old work did in 2012. 

It is the first Chinese science fiction novel, by Lao She, in 1932.

But it is usually regarded as the mainstream literature in mainstream literary circles. (Science fiction is children's literature, how can a famous author write kids book! Their logic.)

As a science fiction, its historical significance is greater than the content. At the beginning of the story, the protagonist's plane crashed on Mars. Yeah, from Earth to Mars, take a plane...

Introduction from
Cat Country (貓城記) is a satirical fable, sometimes seen as the first important Chinese science fiction novel, published in 1932 as a thinly veiled observation on China. Lao She wrote it from the perspective of a visitor to the planet Mars. The visitor encountered an ancient civilisation populated by cat-people. The civilisation had long past its glorious peak and had undergone prolonged stagnation. The visitor observed the various responses of its citizens to the innovations by other cultures. Lao She wrote Cat Country in direct response to Japan's invasion of China (Manchuria in 1931, and Shanghai in 1932).
