At the SFE

A few¬† more entries from me up online at the Encyclopedia of Science Fiction, including one on the Japanese author Tomihiko Morimi, another on China’s Chen Jiatong, and a third on the 1930s Finnish film Our Boys in the Air.


Folding Beijing

ST_20160823_BUZZ23_2540345 The latest upload at the Encyclopedia of Science Fiction includes my piece on Hao Jingfang, who recently won the Hugo for Folding Beijing. My policy in the China section, when time allows, is to write an entry on any Chinese sf author who wins a Yinhe Award, as well as any Chinese sf author who gets translated into English.

Korea Advice

The London Korean Film Festival starts today. In its honour, I point you at a few of the Korean entries I have written for the as-yet unfinished Encyclopedia of Science Fiction: the alternate universe dramas 2009: Lost Memories and Goong, and the author entry on Bok Geo-il. I’m supposed to be concentrating on Chinese and Japanese entries, but every now and then I get distracted… either by Korea or by something that seems like an omission, such as the entries on Roberto Bolano and Chuck Palahniuk. If an entry has “[JonC]” at the bottom, it’s one of mine.
