Chinese science fiction writer Hao Jingfang was shortlisted for the Hugo Award for her book "Folding Beijing," according to Tsinghua University, where she is pursuing her doctorate.

据清华大学消息,中国科幻作家郝景芳凭借《北京折叠》入围雨果奖。她正在清华大学攻读博士学位。

The news was posted on the official website of the World Science Fiction Convention. "Folding Beijing," one of five candidates, is listed under the "Best Novelette" category.

世界科幻大会的官方网站公布了这个消息。今年获得提名的作品共有5篇,《北京折叠》入围“最佳中短篇小说”奖。

"So excited to be shortlisted," said Hao on her Sina Weibo microblog. "The story was first published in a new electronic magazine. Didn't expect to have this result."

郝景芳在她的新浪微博上说,“能入围雨果奖非常惊喜。这部小说最初只是发布在一个新的电子杂志上,没有想到会有这样的结果。”

Hao graduated from the department of physics at Tsinghua University in 2006.

郝景芳2006年毕业于清华大学物理系。

The story follows the protagonist, Lao Dao, as he tries to navigate the complicated class barriers of a futuristic Beijing in order to send his daughter to school.

这部小说讲述了主人公老刀为了能送女儿去上学,试图在未来北京的复杂等级空间中挣扎生活的故事。

"I used to live in suburban Beijing. Near my apartment building there were noisy alleys, small restaurants and an open-air market," she said. The experience inspired her to write the story.

她说,“我曾经居住在北京的城乡结合部,楼下就是嘈杂的小巷子、小苍蝇馆子和大市场。”这种经历给了她创作这部小说的灵感。

Hao said she regreted that the second volume of "The Three-Body Problem," by Liu Cixin, who won the 2015 Hugo Award for Best Novel, was not shortlisted.

2015年,刘慈欣以《三体》摘得雨果奖最佳小说奖,今年《三体2》再度冲击雨果奖却未能入围,对此郝景芳表示遗憾。

Established in 1953, the Hugo Awards are given annually to the best works of science fiction or fantasy and are seen as the "highest honor bestowed in science fiction and fantasy writing."

雨果奖于1953年创立,评选出年度最优秀的科幻文学作品,被誉为“科幻文学界的最高奖”。

Liu, 53, was the first writer in Asia to win the honor.
