Stories of Your Life and Others

Stories of Your Life and Others (2010) by Ted Chiang is a very strong collection of science fiction short stories. Almost all the stories in the collection have won prizes which is remarkable. The film Arrival is based on one of the stories.

Chiang doesn’t write a lot, this is apparently the majority of his writing for over a decade,  but what he does write is very creative and very well done. This collection is very impressive.

This is very good work, it’s highly recommended for anyone who likes really creative fiction. It’s like Borges. The stories are really clever and the writing is excellent.
