Refuge from the dark forest

I'm neck deep in the final volume of Liu Cixin's sci-fi trilogy, which started with the brilliant Three Body Problem. I've been reading it as translations appeared: the first volume in Shanghai in Spring 2015, the second (The Dark Forest) traveling in China at the start of this year, and now the third. Well-written sci-fi with an unfamiliar historical horizon is not a bad way to stay sane at this time where the imagination can't keep up with immanent future possibilities.
