About the Book
'One of the most exciting writers in science fiction . . .Although dark in premise, these parables- threaded through with references to ancient mythology and folklore - are filled with hope and humanism: a balm for anxious souls.'
From the acclaimed author of Stories of Your Life and Others, the basis for the Oscar-nominated Arrival , the long-awaited second collection of stories, each of which remakes speculative fiction in its own unique fashion.
'Deeply beautiful stories . . . Each thoughtful, elegantly crafted story poses a philosophical question; Chiang curates all nine into a conversation that comes full circle, after having traversed remarkable terrain.'
'Chiang's writing . . . inspires awe for the natural properties of the universe; it renders the fundamentals of science poignant and affecting.'
'A scintillating cavalcade of ideas . . . Chiang breathes nwe life into well-worn SF themes such as time travel, artificial intelligence and parallel universes.'
