The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories — Ken Liu

A wonderful, thought provoking collection of short stories from someone who knows how to write short stories.   All i have to say about it is … just read it.

I’m practising keeping my reviews succinct and to the point: i think i’ve got that mastered!

Well worth the 5 star rating i gave it on goodreads.

Ken made a bunch of notes on this book, which you can also read over at goodreads.
