Beschreibung des Verlags

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.

Thought provoking

I bought this book because I heard that one of the short stories was the basis for the film called "Arrival".
This is a thinking person's science fiction. One of the stories took a twist that I couldn't see coming-that doesn't happen all that often, at least for me.

Great book

Stories of Your Life is the best piece of literature that I’ve read in a long time!!

Wow and...whoa...

This author is really intelligent. You think about his stories long after you are done reading them. I couldn’t understand every single thing (“Division by Zero” really zinged my brain), but highly enjoyed each story. Strongly recommend if you like sci fi!
