we have only the memories they left us
curated with loving precision: divested
of darkness, despair, the lingering discontent
of bodies relegated to the shadows.

the myriad flavours of ancient childhoods
burst on our tongues in virtual experience.
holographic hagiographies remember our heroes
their valour and vision, integrity,
the people who loved them.

we bask in the richness of legends
weaving disparate cultures into harmony
taut in calculated, colourful tapestry;
every race has its place.
everyone is always smiling.

accolades glimmer in constellations of praise
set high on screens: best airport, port,
education, healthcare. non-existent crime.
the unrivaled efficiency
of our public transportation.

this, our inheritance!
pride sings in our hearts.

onward, always onward.

The comb is kept in a small case and a magnifying glass is there for you
Know that the end / is something that you cannot escape here.

The new idea is to have the sixth sensors oversee the end of humanity.

In conclusion, I argue that SF fanzines in China mostly played a transitional role. That is, when no professional platforms were available to publish articles and stories, fanzines stepped in. Though most of those fanzines did not last very long, they played the important role of compiling and delivering information. The key reason why I identify those magazines as fanzines is because all the contributors joined out of their interest in SF and worked for free.
