"Essential. You won't know SF if you don't read Ted Chiang."-Greg Bear "Ted Chiang is one of the rare contemporary science-fiction writers who has made his considerable reputation without producing one novel. His stories brim with originality and seduce with their complexity."-Ellen Datlow "One of our very best writers. Prepare: Ted Chiang will astonish you."-James Patrick KellyReseña del editor:
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

Collection of stories from the original publisher from a well-known science fiction writer, exploring the boundaries between science and religion. One of the best short story collections of the last ten years, back in print in a new edition."Shining, haunting, mind-blowing tales this collection is a pure marvel. [Ted] Chiang is so exhilarating so original so stylish he just leaves you speechless. I always suggest a person read at least 52 books a year for proper mental functioning but if you only have time for one, be at peace: you found it."¿Junot Díaz"Meticulously pieced together, utterly thought through, Chiang's stories emerge slowly but with the perfection of slow-growing crystal."¿Lev Grossman"United by a humane intelligence that speaks very directly to the reader, and makes us experience each story with immediacy and Chiang's calm passion."¿China Mieville"Ted is a national treasure each of those stories is a god damned jewel.".
