Supernova Era by Cixin Liu, Joel Martinsen

(0 reviews)
14.99 USD
From science fiction legend Cixin Liu, the New York Times bestselling and award-winning author of The Three-Body Problem, comes a vision of the future that reads “like Ursula K Le Guin rewriting The Lord of the Flies for the quantum age.” (NPR).



In those days, Earth was a planet in space.

In those days, Beijing was a city on Earth.

On this night, history as known to humanity came to an end.

Eight light years away, a star has died, creating a supernova event that showers Earth in deadly levels of radiation. Within a year, everyone over the age of thirteen will die.

And so the countdown begins. Parents apprentice their children and try to pass on the knowledge needed to keep the world running.

But when the world is theirs, the last generation may not want to continue the legacy left to them. And in shaping the future however they want, will the children usher in an era of bright beginnings or final mistakes?

"This audacious and ultimately optimistic early work will give Liu's English-reading fans a glimpse at his evolution as a writer and give any speculative fiction reader food for deep thought." -- Shelf Awareness

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.



Praise for this book

“Stunning concepts and a contemplative tone that provides vital insight into the formative years of one of the genre's masters. In Liu's hands, ‘the children are our future’ becomes far more than a cozy cliché; it's a springboard for the kind of agile and relevant thought experiment that science fiction, at its best, manifests.”—NPR

Praise for the Three-Body trilogy

“Wildly imaginative.”—President Barack Obama

“The War of the Worlds for the twenty-first century . . . Packed with a sense of wonder.”—The Wall Street Journal

“A breakthrough book . . . A unique blend of scientific and philosophical speculation, politics and history, conspiracy theory and cosmology.”—George R. R. Martin

“Tackles politics, philosophy, and virtual reality in a story that moves at a thriller's pace.”—The Washington Post

“Evokes the thrill of exploration and the beauty of scale.”—The New Yorker

“Stunning, elegant . . . A science fiction epic of the most profound kind.”—NPR
