Clarkesworld Magazine has published The Fish of Lijiang, a short story by Chinese writer Chen Qiufan, translated by Ken Liu.

I found it a rather sad story, both from a topical point of view as well as what it promises for the future of humanity - and especially on that level it is much more believable than I'd like it to be, given the subject matter!

The full story can be found here - go read & enjoy!
