One of the panels at Boskone 50 will be a discussion of the short story “Paper Menagerie” by Ken Liu, originally published in the March/April 2011 edition of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. If you’d like to read the story in preparation for the panel discussion, IO9 is hosting a digital version of the story on their site. Click on this link to access “Paper Menagerie” by Ken Liu.
Ken Liu’s 2011 short story “Paper Menagerie” is the first fiction to win all three of SF’s major honors: the Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy awards. Let’s all read it beforehand, then talk. How does it do what it does? What makes a story so popular? What makes a story great?
Please note that the date and time for the panel discussion has not yet been released, but we’ll update this blog post with that information soon.
