I picked up Stories of Your Life and Others by Ted Chiang because of Life’s Library. It was the first book sent after finishing graduate school, so it’s the first one that I’ve had time to read since August.
Confession: I didn’t know the movie Arrival was based on a short story, and I didn’t know the short story was in this collection until I saw the cover.
Stories of Your Life and Others is a collection of science fiction short stories. The subjects of the stories vary wildly, but I found myself sucked into each story in a different way.
Have you read any short stories by Ted Chiang? Who are your favorite short story authors?
