Mountain ebook

Liu Cixin is an eloquent and technically precise writer, which makes his works a pleasure to read, but in this story, the romantic sentimentality of a civilization struggling against all odds to realize its potential seeps in gradually among the backdrop of technical grandeur, and the reader is caught in breathless wonder of its power. I still have shivers every time I ride to the climax of the story.
Liu is widely recognized as the best SF writer in all of China; after his terrifyingly powerful long trilogy "Three-Body" (an English translation due to come out soon) his fans declared him absolutely the best SF writer in the world. Though this novella "Mountain" does not have the length to match the epic scope of Three-Body, it is no less breathtaking. This is my favourite shorter story from his works, with majestic poetry echoing in the core of the tale.

Only Liu Cixin can fit such an epic into the length of a novella. Totally recommend it.

  1. I feel that if I need to put money out up front, then they are a scam. I just want to be able to move to a small mountain town and this seems like the kind of thing I can go anywhere and do.

    Picture, you're in a log cabin in a serene state park, in the mountains. You're sitting in the front porch, bug screen to protect. There is a library in the den, and a PDA. Which do you prefer? The PDA is obviously more convenient, and, from Guteberg and Amazon, your library is unlimited. Still, which do you prefer?

  3. I have traveled around the united states taking pictures of Beautiful places such as national parks, beaches, lakes, sunsets, sun rises. I have gone through the woods and hiked through canyons getting pictures of mountains. I have gotten pictures of caves and water falls. I wrote about each photo and my experience. I wrote about what I had to get photo. I am not sure what kind of writer/ photographer that's called. I want to turn all of what I have done into a book and was wondering how I would go about doing that. Can anyone help me? I was also wondering If I could live anywhere if I where a Writer/ photographer. I want to move to London, England.
