Arrival: Film tie-in Kindle Edition
United by a humane intelligence that speaks very directly to the reader, and makes us experience each story with immediacy and Chiang's calm passion. -- China Miéville, Guardian
Ted is a national treasure . . . each of those stories is a goddamned jewel -- Cory Doctorow
Confirms that blending science and fine art at this length can produce touching works, tales as intimate as our own blood cells, with the structural strength of just-discovered industrial alloys., Seattle Times
Chiang derides lazy thinking, weasels it out of its hiding place, and leaves it cowering., Washington Post
Science fiction is a genre that often works well off the page. Spaceships and robots are just as thrilling on screen as in books. But Mr Chiang's approach is irreplaceable. His stories mirror the process of scientific discovery: complex ideas emerge from the measured, methodical accumulation of information until epiphany strikes. . . . The best science fiction inspires awe for the natural properties of the universe; it renders the fundamentals of science poignant and affecting. Mr Chiang's writing manages all of this. He deserves to be more widely read., The Economist blog --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

I was not disappointed and found the stories intelligent and cleverly plotted.
They are all relatively short, but do use a lot of techno-speak, so if tech and science gobbledygook, is not your thing, then best to avoid.
