HELSINKI, Aug. 15 (Xinhua) -- "Look at the fandom! Most of them are at their 40s or 50s. If a literature is welcomed by the chubby middle aged only, then where is the future of it?"
Chinese leading sci-fi writer Liu Cixin still remembered that the science fiction used to enjoy a golden age when almost all the writers and readers were vigorous youngsters.
Xinhua reporters talked with Liu following an awarding ceremony of the Hugo Awards, deemed the highest honors for science fiction works, at the 75th World Science Fiction Conference in Helsinki last weekend.
Liu's novel "The Three-Body Problem III: Death's End" did not win out although it was within the finalists of the Hugo Award for Best Novel. The winner was "The Obelisk Gate", the second book of a popular series written by American novelist N. K. Jemisin, who was the winner of the same award last year.
While Jemisin set the plot on a strange planet, she portrayed a picture that actually happens on the earth, with great effort in depicting the disparities between social classes.
LIGHT FANTASY STYLE
Liu Cixin witnessed a lot more of the Hugo winning works focusing on real lift problems such as ethnic discrimination, sexual bias, the impact of AI on human society etc in recent years. Different storytelling styles have also been adopted, he added.
Another example is the series of epic novels "A Song of Ice and Fire", which features what Liu described "a light fantasy style". "The fantasy element is not so evident in the novel, and the writer has shown great restraint in application of the super natural force," he elaborated.
Unlike the legendary work written by George P. R. Martin, the Chinese bestseller "The Three-Body Problem" written by Liu Cixin is considered representative of the traditional faction, or known as "hard science fiction". It won the Hugo Award for Best Novel in 2015, and was said to be possible to revive the taste of the genre.
"Actually it hasn't, and will never revive," said Liu. He told Xinhua, not without regret, that he would probably never again win the Hugo Award in his life.
Similarly regrettably, another excellent traditional science fiction series, "The Exapanse" has not won any of the Hugo Awards or Nebula Awards at all, noted Liu.
LACK OF MYSTERY
The cause of the decline of the traditional science fiction literary, Liu believes, is the lack of sense of mystery of science.
The science has been developed to an extent that people are surrounded and bombarded by all kinds of new technologies "so that people are not any more curious about the science fiction," he said.
The Americans started to try to turn the tide in 1970s, putting more effort on literariness, describing more of human thoughts than the aliens'. "But the effort seems to have little effect," said Liu.
The shortened distance between real science and the science fiction is the fatal challenge to traditional sci-fi writers, and what adds to the frustration is that Liu can "see no way out of the dilemma."

THE first adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s crime books, written under her pseudonym Robert Galbraith, starts Sunday on BBC One.
After a fashion model falls from the window of her apartment, her death is ruled to be suicide. Private investigator Cormoran Strike is hired to discover whether she was actually murdered.
But the story is just as much about the growing friendship between Strike and Robin Ellacott, his new temp.
The mini-series, which follows the book very closely, is an adaptation of the first Cormoran Strike book “The Cuckoo’s Calling.”
As is now widely known, Robert Galbraith is a pseudonym for “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling.
Her identity as the writer of “The Cuckoo’s Calling” was revealed by a Sunday newspaper shortly after the book was published.
A lawyer was later disciplined by the Solicitors Regulation Authority for breach of confidentiality after he admitted telling a close friend who Robert Galbraith really was.
J.K. Rowling has said she has ideas for several more stories. Four months ago she revealed that the title of the fourth book will be “Lethal White.”
She also said that the story will pick up straight after a crucial event at the very end of “Career of Evil.”
SARAJEVO, June 28 (Xinhua) -- Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) on Saturday marked the 100th anniversary since the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, which lit the fuse for World War One(WWI).
The centerpiece was a concert performed by Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra in the City Hall, which just finished restoration since it was destroyed during the Bosnia War in 1990s.
The landmark building is just several minutes of walk from the Latin Bridge, which became famous over the assassination. On June 28, 1914, Franz Ferdinand, the heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary, was assassinated with his wife Sophie near Latin Bridge by Gavrilo Princip, a Bosnian Serb.
It is widely believed that the pistol shots by Princip lit the fuse for WWI. The war resulted in disintegration of empires and some 10 million soldiers killed.
During his speech at the City Hall, Bakir Izetbegovic, Chairman of BiH Presidency, called for peace, tolerance and mutual understanding in a bid to build for a better future.
Apart from the concert, there were other activities in the city in t. Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Custom NFL Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys China
