    Wonderful

    Heres a set of stories that explore concepts as far apart as the end of mathamatics to angelic visitation. Each story is a real page turner and Chiang comes up with deep implications of the ideas he presents. SF fans used to talk about stories that illicit that 'sense of wonder'. If you like that sort of science fiction, you'll wonder why you didn't pick up this anthology sooner.

    Simply amazing.

    Mr Chiang writes with such clarity of thought and depth of imagination, it's often difficult to pull oneself away. Each story is told in a unique style, and none fits a specific genre. I loved them all.

    Must read for anyone who loves sci-fi

    After reading Ted Chiang, I will be tracking down all of his other works to read as soon as I can. Chiang not only shares stories of a great variety of topics, but his ability to capture vastly different, often even conflicting, perspectives is amazing. His subjects of interest cover the spectrum of sci-fi, and even venture a bit outside its realm, but do not disappoint at all. I wholly recommend Stories of Your Life and Others to anyone who appreciates captivating tales of humanity, that call attention to important issues, and tell great stories along the way.
