Why is it so difficult to find Science Fiction in China? I'm looking for easier-to-read texts to help improve my vocabulary and I enjoy Science Fiction (SciFi) so I thought I'd try to find some Chinese SciFi to read. I can find translations of more famous works English-language works but I can't seem to find any indigenous Chinese SciFi.

Can anyone suggest any good Chinese SciFi? I'd love to find videos to watch.

With all the theories currently circulating here on CD there seems to be plenty of science fiction in China

The Chinese often joke that China only produce historical movies while the US only produce SciFi movie. They explain the reason is because one country does not have a past while the other doesn't have a future...

SciFi is frowned upon by the government in China so it will be hard to pass the censure committee. Another thing is, to write SciFi one needs imagination, which cruelly lacks in China.

Finally, SciFi is usually an allegory of the society in which we live and it denounces it strongly, something that is not allowed in China.

Mister Panda,

thank you for your interesting insight into this matter. I know there is at least one series of books out there that I found recently, but I'm trying to find more.

I hope that the central government will lighten up on these restrictions - SciFi can be quite inspirational to technology - look at all the things that were predicted in Star Trek that have since become reality - flip phones, iPads/tablets, there's even a list floating around on the Internet something about "Star Trek: Accurately Predicting the future since 1966" or something like that.
