After every new Ebook Club offering, Tor.com’s non-fiction contributors will explore the book in the form of social media chats, Tor.com articles, and sit-downs with the authors. We’ll get granular (“But how fast can your dragons fly?”) and silly (“If they were space dragons then here’s what their space dragon space suit would look like”) and cultural (“Did the dragons’ society calcify once they moved from three genders to two? Would humanity benefit from intellectual innovation by moving from two genders to three?”), and more.

The Tor.com Ebook Club’s first offering is THE THREE-BODY PROBLEM, the first volume in Cixin Liu’s substantial sci-fi epic!

Set against the backdrop of China’s Cultural Revolution, a secret military project sends signals into space to establish contact with aliens. An alien civilization on the brink of destruction captures the signal and plans to invade Earth. Meanwhile, on Earth, different camps start forming, planning to either welcome the superior beings and help them take over a world seen as corrupt, or to fight against the invasion. The result is a science fiction masterpiece of enormous scope and vision.

Cixin Liu’s The Three-Body Problem is a tremendous cultural sci-fi touchstone in China; one that has only recently found its way to North America thanks to the translation efforts of Ken Liu and Joel Martinsen. Readers interested in first contact stories, and curious about how culture spreads on an interstellar level, will find plenty to love in this series, and plenty to surprise them. Where you may think the story is going is certainly not where it ends up!

Thanks for this. I'm always looking for anything sci-fi. We could use more of it here.
