Science fiction has existed in China since Lu Xun (penname of Zhou Shuren, 25 September 1881–19 October 1936), a leading figure of Chinese literature, translated From the Earth to the Moon by French author Jules Verne into Chinese in 1902. Fannish activity in China today takes place in Shanghai; Beijing; Chengdu, Sichuan; and, likely, other places obscure to the West.
