Feedback:

– Derek Künsken: This was the first time I was in a rural area of China, or in the mountains, and I was struck by how green and growing the nature seemed. The Miao village Peiguo high in the mountains was astonishing in its beauty, standing on the edge of a field of mountain ridges that went on until the cloudy haze hid the furthest ones. I included these views in my story, along with the endless terraces of rice fields.

– Kelly Robson: It’s a terrific trip and a unique opportunity to see a beautiful part of the world that I otherwise would never have gotten anywhere near. The FAA staff were so fun to spend time with, and I have loved keeping in touch with them after the trip via WeChat. I recommend this trip with all my heart, and urge you not to miss it!

Until this year, no story of mine appeared in Chinese, so this is an exciting moment for me, at the age of 75! May your readers enjoy the story!

Hello to the science fiction reader of China, and I hope that your own (slow) travel through time will be just as interesting and rewarding as the science fiction stories of time travel.
