Excerpt: “The sound of water splurging around echoed like a distant whisper. The soft gurgle grew louder and louder in Daniel’s ears until he realized he wasn’t dreaming.

DESCRIPTION:

“Of Ants and dinosaurs” is a fascinating fable for young readers; And an extraordinary science fiction story for a mature audience. Millions of years ago, in the remote depths of the Late Cretaceous, two glorious civilization flourished in symbiosis: The dinosaur nations and the coalition of ants. Taking the best from each to complement the other, these two species lived in harmony. With their great intelligence and visionary creativity the dinosaurs constantly advanced both technology and society; While the ants managed all the small things, squeezing into the dinosaurs’ computers to connect their microscopic circuitry. Until one day, on the annual dinosaur and ant summit, the ants insisted that the dinosaurs dismantle all their nuclear weapons…

—————————-

Liu Cixin’s writing will remind SF fans of the genre’s golden age, with its positive focus on scientific development, combined with a consistently constructive vision of China’s future role as a global superpower. It’s characteristic of an SF genre which has been embraced by Chinese culture because it is seen as representing the values of technological innovation and creativity so highly prized in a country developing more quickly than any other in the world today.
