I can't read Chinese unfortunately :|

I really enjoyed Cixin Liu's work and will be starting Ball Lightning soon. I'm currently reading Ken Liu's work (Translator for Cixin Liu) and just finished reading some work from Ted Chiang - but I believe both are Chinese-American.

I couldn't find anything from Da Liu in English unfortunately. Hopefully someday soon we'll have more translation done :)

and d
o you use WeChat? If you use it, you can add me as a contact, which will make it easier for us to communicate. My account number is 18981562637
When you add me I can send you an animation that seems only to be available in China.we call it 《我的三体》
Do you want to see the three body problems movies? I don't know if the United States will be released, but China is sure to.
Really looking forward to it.

yes, i read all three books. pretty interesting concepts in them, nice ideas and huge scales. 
love your painting too!

if you didn't read Dan Simmons Hyperion yet, then i'd recommend that.
and if you like post apocalyptic stories then i think The Road from Cormac McCarthy is a must read.

Hummmm, besides the Three Body Series I'm a big fan of Neal Stephensons work. Just about all of it really. Have you tried them? :)

Yes, my favourites were Snow Crash and Diamond Age. 
His newer books tend to be very hard sci-fi, super detailed on technology  - which can be a bit dry to read, but still very interesting concepts.
What are your top 3 favourite books? (doesn't need to be sci-fi)
I always need new stuff to read.
