I don’t really want to abandon this The Wandering Earth collection after only two stories, but the third one already is a slog. I hate dropping books, though.

I don’t currently have access to any of my other fiction picks, though, so I’m not sure what to do. (I always have one fiction and one nonfiction going at the same time.)

No, yeah, dropped. Realized I have A Dead Djinn in Cairo on hand and will start in on that tonight. Or, I guess, maybe finish it as it’s short.


It’s too bad. I love Liu Cixin’s longer work, but those short stories were just not doing it for me. Might have been the translator, though.
