The opening instalment of China's best-selling apocalyptic space opera trilogy.

1967: Ye Wenjie witnesses Red Guards beat her father to death during China's Cultural Revolution. This singular event will shape not only the rest of her life but also the future of mankind. Four decades later, Beijing police ask nanotech engineer Wang Miao to infiltrate a secretive cabal of scientists after a spate of inexplicable suicides. Wang's investigation will lead him to a mysterious online game and immerse him in a virtual world ruled by the intractable and unpredictable interaction of its three suns.

This is the Three-Body Problem and it is the key to everything: the key to the scientists' deaths, the key to a conspiracy that spans light-years and the key to the extinction-level threat humanity now faces.

Cixin Liu is China's #1 SF writer. Prior to becoming a writer, he worked as an engineer in a power plant in Yangquan. Translator Ken Liu's short story The Paper Menagerie was the first work of fiction ever to sweep the Nebula, Hugo, and World Fantasy Awards.


'Cixin Liu began his massively ambitious trilogy with this dazzling work of SF ... Hard to sum up in a few short lines, but one you read it you'll be doing your best to tell everyone else to follow suit' SciFiNow. 'Even what doesn't happen is epic' London Review of Books. 'A breakthrough book ... a unique blend of scientific and philosophical speculation, politics and history, conspiracy theory and cosmology, where kings and emperors from both western and Chinese history mingle in a dreamlike game world, while cops and physicists deal with global conspiracies, murders, and alien invasions in the real world' George R.R. Martin. 'A marvellous melange of awe-inspiring scientific concepts, clever plotting and quirky yet plausible characters' TLA.
