"Although the definition of 'high concept' science fiction isn't easy to pin down, many fans of hard science fiction would point to the work of Cixin Liu as a prime example: challenging and imaginative in its use of hard and theoretical sciences, intricately plotted on a sweeping galactic scale, and culturally and intellectually provocative. Liu's novels pose and explore new concepts of astrophysics, extraterrestrial life, artificial intelligence, and other mind-bending ideas, all set against the backdrop of 20th and 21st century China". ~NoveList Plus
