Product description


Shining, haunting, mind-blowing tales . . . this collection is a pure marvel. [Ted] Chiang is so exhilarating so original so stylish he just leaves you speechless. I always suggest a person read at least 52 books a year for proper mental functioning but if you only have time for one, be at peace: you found it -- Junot Diaz

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars I cannot in all honesty give this book a good review, because it's not a good book.
