An award-winning book from the author of Exhalation, this short story collection “blend[s] absorbing storytelling with meditations on the universe, being, time and space. . . . raises questions about the nature of reality and what it is to be human.” —The New York Times

Includes “Story of Your Life” the basis for the major motion picture Arrival

Stories of Your Life and Others delivers dual delights of the very, very strange and the heartbreakingly familiar, often presenting characters who must confront sudden change—the inevitable rise of automatons or the appearance of aliens—with some sense of normalcy. With sharp intelligence and humor, Chiang examines what it means to be alive in a world marked by uncertainty, but also by beauty and wonder. An award-winning collection from one of today’s most lauded writers, Stories of Your Life and Others is a contemporary classic.
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 Genessee
