Why I'm Waiting

I love Ken Liu.  The Paper Menagerie was my first Short Story Sunday, it's one of my all-time favorite stories.  I've read a bunch of his other short stories and I have thoroughly enjoyed them all, so a book of them all together?  Awesome.  And I absolutely love Laohu on the cover!
