About this author

Ken Liu has won the Nebula, Hugo, and World Fantasy Awards and been a finalist for the Sturgeon and Locus Awards.

His debut fantasy novel, THE GRACE OF KINGS, will be published by Simon & Schuster in 2015. Saga will also release a collection of his short stories.

A programmer as well as a lawyer, Ken has published stories in F&SF, Asimov's, Analog, Strange Horizons, Clarkesworld, and Lightspeed, among other places. Besides writing original fiction, he also translates fiction from Chinese into English.

He lives in Massachusetts with his wife and daughters. For more about him and his work, please visit http://kenliu.name.


It is now possible to pre-order The Grace of Kings from Amazon! This thing is real… (I would have posted the link to BN and other places as well, but apparently only Amazon puts up the pre-order link this early.)

“The truth is not delicate and it does not suffer from denial—the truth only dies when true stories are untold.”
Ken Liu, The Man Who Ended History: A Documentary

“Every moment, as we walk on this earth, we are watched and judged by the eyes of the universe.”
Ken Liu, The Man Who Ended History: A Documentary

“The agony of the dead is with us, and we hear their screams and walk among their ghosts. We cannot avert our eyes or plug up our ears. We must bear witness and speak for those who cannot speak. We have only one chance to get it right.”
