This is a collection of books written by people with Chinese ancestry who no longer live in China. The stories ranged from alternative history of China stories to modern futuristic stories. Many used the folklore of China, fox demons and dragons etc, very well. Many commented on the process of finding of blending cultures with a non-Asian community, or even non-Asian family members. Most of the stories were imaginative, while also providing food for thought. The last story though... not to my taste. I wish I'd stopped on the second to last one that was an odd take on reincarnation.

The story concepts were wide ranging, from historical fantasy to rocketship science fiction and from folklore to steampunk. There were a few, like Lips of Ash by Huang and Mortal Clay, Stone Heart by Foster that seemed complete and fabulous in short story form. There were others, like The Character and the Hound by Pi or The Water Weapon by Clough that seemed like they might be setting up books or series that I would be very excited to read. Then there were a few that were just... not to my taste. Overall, a very mixed bag of stories, but it did introduce me to a few new-to-me authors that I'm looking forward to reading more by.
