19th and 20th century Chinese science fiction authors

After deciding to write my undergraduate dissertation on something to do with Chinese science fiction, I’ve found that there isn’t a great deal of straightforward information on this topic in English. Hopefully, by writing up some of my basic notes here, I can create a starting point for other people who are interested in this.

First up is this list of 20th century Chinese science fiction authors (I’ll most likely be researching a selection of authors and their work from some period of the 20th century). It’s by no means comprehensive, so please point out more in the comments at the end of the page.

The list is arranged chronologically by birth date of the author, and includes any author who published Chinese-language work during the 20th century that could be considered science fiction.

This list is just a starting point; I’ll be adding to it over time.
