“Uncanny Magazine Issue 15” by S. Qiouyi is the story of a clone named Harry Lee.

He is one of about fifty copies of famous leader Kuan Yew that almost singlehandedly managed to bring prosperity to his island nation. He is a very useful resource in the modern world given his exceptional skills and hence, the Academy clones tens of him and other famous individuals.

These clones are then given simulated experiences that are similar to that of their original to make them just as good as their progenitors. The most proficient clones graduate and are sent out to groups and nations who purchase them while the lower quality ones are killed off.

But Harry Lee the fiftieth clone baffles everyone by doing the most unexpected things. But his displays of individuality and leadership may just doom him.
S. Qiouyi takes a fresh perspective on the idea of how lives diverge and how minor events and decisions can shape lives. He also asserts that sometimes doors may not be fully closed even when we think they are.

S. Qiouyi’s novel “The Watchful City” is an exploration of diaspora, power, transformation, and borders. The Asian-inspired novel combines the magical realism of “Palimpsest” by Catherynne M. Valente and “Central Station” by Lavie Tidhar to make an exceptional creation.

The story is set in Ora, a city that makes use of the “Gleaming,” a complex living network that maintains harmony and surveils the residents.

One of the people tasked with surveilling the citizens is Anima. Even though her world is nothing more than seeing and experiencing the world through Gleaming, she takes a lot of pride in the fact that she is responsible for keeping her city safe.

But everything changes when a mysterious visitor comes to Ora with a cabinet of curiosities from across the globe each with its own story. Her world is expanding beyond Ora to possibilities and places she never imagined existed.
