Ken Liu has won a Seiun Award! His 2013 work, “The Paper Menagerie,” won in the “Best Translated Short Story” category.
The Seiun Awards were founded in 1970, and are voted on by the participants of the annual Japan Science Fiction Convention. (While Seiun literally means “nebula” in Japanese, the award is not affiliated with the Nebulas.) Previous award winners in the translated short story category include Thomas Disch, Roger Zelazny, and Greg Bear.
