According to Baoshu himself, this story is better understood as alternate history rather than hard-core science fiction. The premise of the story draws on philosophy, and Jean-Paul Sartre, who actually appears in the story. It runs real historical events and personalities in reverse order, to ask some fundamental questions. So the starting point is a China where it is now – lots of technology, industry, a successful host of the Olympics (birds nest stadium). We follow Xie Baosheng from this point over decades as events happen in the reverse order, with world leaders and nations carrying out actions that see the USSR created, then Germany split in two, then the Cultural Revolution, then the Korean War, then the Second World War. Owing to some of its sensitive contents its original Chinese version "Da shidai" (大时代 ; literally, The Great Era), was circulated online only, but American SF writer Ken Liu just translated it into English and had it published on Fantasy and Science Fiction March/April 2015. It was named Best SF Short Story of the Year 2015 by bestsf.net.
This work relates a story about the contemporary world trapped in a mysterious and unbreakable time loop in one single day—October 11, 2012 and its salvation by a male college student Han Fang and an enigmatic girl he met. This work is one of the first attempts to blend science fiction and Western-style apocalypse theme in Chinese science fiction works and proved to be a great success, winning 2014 saga novel Nebula Award for Chinese science fictions, one of the highest honors of Chinese SF works.
The first book by Baoshu, an unauthorized fan sequel of Liu Cixin's Remembrance of Earth's Past, intersected with dōjinshi and young-adult fictional experience, which evokes a lot of disagreement and discussion on the Internet, due to its unofficial nature and adult elements such as a Japanese pornographic actress. It was later published in 2011 with the permission of Liu Cixin, and Liu's publisher, Chongqing Press. It was published in English by Tor Books as The Redemption of Time in July 2019.
According to a conversation with Xia Jia, a fellow Chinese science fiction writer and a friend of Baoshu, Baoshu had been a loyal fan of Liu Cixin since 2000, when Liu started publishing his short stories. But it was not until 2010, while studying at Leuven, that Baoshu began to compose his own stories. When the third volume of Liu Cixin's The Three-Body Problem trilogy was published in China at the end of 2010, Baoshu was still abroad and had no way to get the book quickly. Luckily, a good friend photocopied every page of the book and sent it to him online. Having read the long work non-stop and greatly inspired by its plot, Baoshu composed a 100,000 characters Dōjin-style sequel, Three Body X: Aeon of Contemplation (三体X•观想之宙 ), in roughly three weeks. Appearing less than a month after the publication of Death's End, this online sequel caught the attention of many of Liu's readers – and of Liu himself who authorised the publication of the sequel in 2011. It was well received and launched his career as a writer.
