Chinese science fiction

The cryptically named 'zhwj' is an English language website about Chinese science fiction.

So far, the site contains an introduction to Chinese science fiction, news about the Milky Way Awards (awarded to the year's best science fiction short stories as chosen by a panel of Chinese SF publishers and critics), other information about Chinese SF, and a section titled Frequently Imagined Questions.

Here is some eye candy: magazine covers of Science Fiction World and the cover of a Chinese translation of Alfred Bester's 'The Stars My Destination'. The images were taken from Science Fiction World's website, found via zhwj.
