'The whole project offers a fascinating insight to a 'new' author, with the graphic novels serving as a gateway drug to a traditionally inaccessible voice in the realm of SFF' * SciFiNow * 'The graphic novel format enables both ends of the spectrum to be demonstrated wonderfully, with crisp, clear artwork from Stefano Raffaele that fairly glows on the page. Scene-setting panels that break across the top of a double page give voice to fabulous vistas of future cities, scenes of natural disasters, epic sunrises and large-scale technological installations. They are panels that draw in the eye and that you can spend quite some time absorbing ... This is a thoroughly enjoyable and engrossing graphic novel that has whetted my appetite further for the forthcoming editions in the series' * SF Crowsnest * 'A unique blend of scientific and philosophical speculation, politics and history, conspiracy theory and cosmology' -- George R.R. Martin 'Wildly imaginative, really interesting ... The scope of it was immense' -- Barack Obama 'A milestone in Chinese science fiction' * New York Times * 'A marvellous melange of awe-inspiring scientific concepts, clever plotting and quirky yet plausible characters ... Exhilarating, mind-stretching' * TLS * 'China's answer to Arthur C. Clarke' * The New Yorker *
