Reviews

'Hugo Award-winner Jingfang's cerebral, futuristic debut explores the interplay between societal values and individual dreams in crisp, gorgeous prose ... Fans of literary science fiction will relish this challenging tale' Publishers Weekly.
'A thoughtful debut with ample scope for reader engagement' Kirkus.
'[A] masterful narrative. Highly recommended for fans of Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars trilogy or readers who enjoy sf with a focus on social and political themes' Booklist.
'[A] spellbinding novel' Asia House.
'A long, generous, and often quite graceful novel ... Jingfang's ambitious novel [...] represents a significant new voice in world SF' Locus Magazine.
'Luoying holds the keys to peace between the planets, but the author, an economist based in Beijing, is more interested in the subtleties of her journey than in her arrival, offering up a long, satisfying meditation on political and creative freedom. Vagabonds juxtaposes Earth's capitalist free-for-all with Mars's centralised, authoritarian high-mindedness' The Times.
'In a leisurely, discursive narrative Hao spins a fascinating and even-handed examination of two very different possible futures' Guardian.
