Description
NATIONAL BESTSELLER • ONE OF THE NEW YORK TIMES BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR Nine stunningly original, provocative, and poignant stories—two published for the very first time—all from the mind of the incomparable author of Stories of Your Life and Others
Tackling some of humanity’s oldest questions along with new quandaries only he could imagine, these stories will change the way you think, feel, and see the world. They are Ted Chiang at his best: profound, sympathetic, revelatory.
Ted Chiang tackles some of humanity’s oldest questions along with new quandaries only he could imagine.
In “The Merchant and the Alchemist’s Gate,” a portal through time forces a fabric seller in ancient Baghdad to grapple with past mistakes and second chances. In “Exhalation,” an alien scientist makes a shocking discovery with ramifications that are literally universal. In “Anxiety Is the Dizziness of Freedom,” the ability to glimpse into alternate universes necessitates a radically new examination of the concepts of choice and free will.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Three talented narrators--Edoardo Ballerini, Dominic Hoffman, and Amy Landon--share the task of voicing these nine sci-fi stories. The theme of Ted Chiang's thought-provoking collection is technology and its sometimes unexpected impacts on society. The works touch on the topics of time travel, fate versus free will, and artificial intelligence, among others. The narrators effectively deliver Middle Eastern and African accents, along with the voices of robots, and present stories featuring technical details without sounding stiff or unnatural. Chiang himself provides commentary after each of the stories, explaining its inspiration and helping to shed light on its meaning. S.E.G. � AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine
