Who doesn't love #bookmail? My first installment of twelve months of Pushkin Press books from parents who know me too well. These little editions would have been really helpful for my book pyramid yesterday!

vivastory @Moray_Reads What kind of press is Pushkin? They sound maybe similar to NYRB classics? 3y
Moray_Reads @vivastory I think they have similar remits, modern classics, forgotten works etc. There's a lot of European translation and they publish interesting new work too. All lovely editions 3y
vivastory @Moray_Reads I will look into them. Always on the lookout for interesting publishers. 3y

Very short sci-fi has problems giving the reader enough detail to bring these fantastic worlds to life without bogging the story down in exposition. This issue was dated to ignore in this collection but there are some gems, Xia Jia's stories are particularly beautiful
