Fiction. Literature. Science Fiction. Short Stories. This new edition of Ted Chiang's masterful first collection, Stories of Your Life and Others, includes his first eight published stories. Combining the precision and scientific curiosity of Kim Stanley Robinson with Lorrie Moore's cool, clear love of language and narrative intricacy, this award-winning collection offers listeners the dual delights of the very, very strange and the heartbreakingly familiar. Stories of Your Life and Others presents characters who must confront sudden change-the inevitable rise of automatons or the appearance of aliens-while striving to maintain some sense of normalcy. In the amazing and much-lauded title story (the basis for the 2016 movie Arrival), a grieving mother copes with divorce and the death of her daughter by drawing on her knowledge of alien languages and non-linear memory recollection. A clever pastiche of news reports and interviews chronicles a college's initiative to "turn off" the human ability to recognize beauty in "Liking What You See: A Documentary." With sharp intelligence and humor, Chiang examines what it means to be alive in a world marked by uncertainty and constant change, and also by beauty and wonder.… (mais)

Hell is the Absence of God is probably my favorite short story - along with Ursula K. Le Guin's Those Who Walk Away From Omelas - and the rest of the stories are great too. All of them are filled with ideas and those ideas just keep coming, twists, new perspectives or building on previous ideas. When most writers would stop, Chiang just keep going, which means, reading this feels like expanding your mind even when ultimately the short story didn't connect with me that much. Or even when you already read the short story. ( )

Big meh: no exciting ideas and the narrative summary delivery bores me to tears. ( )

"Stories of Your Life" by Ted Chiang is a captivating collection of speculative fiction that serves as a thought-provocation exercise on concepts such as human nature, consciousness, language, and the nature of reality itself. In the namesake short, "Story of Your Life," which was adapted into the film "Arrival," Chiang explores how language shapes our perception of reality and the implications of understanding a nonlinear perception of time. It's a deeply moving narrative that delves into the emotional complexities of human connection and the acceptance of the inevitable. In another story, “Division by Zero,” Chiang skillfully blends mathematics with existential questions, challenging readers to reconsider their understanding of reality and self. I could go on and on, but all would circle the fact that each story is a gem. “Stories of Your Life” is a remarkable collection. ( )

The main attraction for me was to read "Story of Your Life", upon which the movie "Arrival" was based. I was also drawn by the hope of reading something reminiscent of Jorge Borges, and this is probably my favourite short story collection since reading his "Ficciones". These stories have an emotional journey component, but each one is also a thought experiment: the 'what if' exploration of an idea and what its implications might be. Chiang is also excellent at selecting the right narrative approach in each instance to make the story work.

Tower of Babylon - This tower has entranced my imagination since I was a child, so it was a pleasure to read a story that brings the concept to life.

Understand - Chiang musters his own version of Dr. Manhattan, convincingly describing his path from human to superhuman in first-person. That is no mean trick.

Division by Zero - The arithimetic of falling out of love; a metaphor for academicians. But a real mathematician would seek an operation to hold suspect rather than the entire system.

Story of Your Life - The story has less politics and lower stakes than its related movie, more focused on the notion at its centre.

Seventy-Two Letters - A steampunk world in which the manufacture of golems has become a science. Excellent structure but challenging to follow at times.

The Evolution of Human Science - This envisioned future of 'metahumans' could more easily be brought about by AI.

Hell is the Absence of God - The Book of Job as it should have ended.

Liking What You See: A Documentary - It's funny that with all the precautions society takes to protect ourselves against mishap, how willing we are to just take our lumps in the romantic sphere. Suppose an effort were made to change that? ( )

These short stories and novellas are dense and cerebral. The central concepts are fascinating and the characters often have wildly different perspectives without feeling like they're made of straw.

My favorites:
"Hell is the Absence of God"
"Tower of Babylon"
"Liking What You See: A Documentary" ( )
