Here are eight astonishing science-fiction stories that explore the boundaries between science and religion, between determinism and our ability to choose, between words and the entities they describe. Here are stories of conceptual breakthrough...of making sense of the universe and our place in it. 'What a pleasure it is to read Chiang...Can he be the best SF writer to come down the pike in the past thirty years? I honestly believe that he is' Harry Harrison 'Superb and thought-provoking. I could run out of superlatives trying to describe Chiang's work. Stories of Your Life is the best collection of short stories, novellas and novelettes I have ever read...Ted Chiang will blow you away with this astonishing collection' The Alien Online

This marvelous collection by one of science fiction's most thoughtful and graceful writers belongs on the bookshelf of anyone interested in literary science fiction.
Collected here for the first time, Ted Chiang's award-winning stories--recipients of the Nebula, Sturgeon, Campbell, and Asimov awards--offer a feast of science, speculation, humanity, and lyricism. Standouts include "Tower of Babylon," in which a miner ascends the fabled tower in order to break through the vault of heaven; "Division by Zero," a precise and heartbreaking examination of the disintegration of hope and love; and "Story of Your Life," in which a linguist learns an alien language that reshapes her view of the world. Chiang has the gift that lies at the heart of good science fiction: a human story, beautifully told, in which the science is an expression of the deeper issues that the characters must confront. Full of remarkable ideas and unforgettable moments, Stories of Your Life and Others is highly recommended. --Roz GenesseeAbout the Author:
