I recently read and enjoyed Rain Ship by Chi Hui, translated by Andy Dudak. This is part of Clarkeworlds Chinese SF in translation project. I really liked the way the author used a bunch of different worldbuilding techniques all at once. There is incluing, and also footnotes with info dumps. Which sounds like it wouldn't work, but did for me. I have few quibbles about evolutionary biology but the rest of the story drew me in enough that it wasn't a big deal. (Content note: infanticide, harm to older children.)
