'One of the most exciting writers in science fiction . . . CHIANG Although dark in premise, these parables - threaded through with references to ancient mythology and folklore - are filled with hope and humanism: a balm for anxious souls.' DAILY TELEGRAPH

From the acclaimed author of Stories of Your Life and Others, the basis for the Oscar-nominated Arrival, the long-awaited second collection of stories, each of which remakes speculative fiction in its own unique fashion.

'Deeply beautiful stories . . . Each thoughtful, elegantly crafted story poses a philosophical question; Chiang curates all nine into a conversation that comes full circle, after having traversed remarkable terrain.' NEW YORK TIMES 'THE 10 BEST BOOKS OF 2019'

'Chiang's writing . . . inspires awe for the natural properties of the universe; it renders the fundamentals of science poignant and affecting.' ECONOMIST

'A scintillating cavalcade of ideas . . . Chiang breathes new life into well-worn SF themes such as time travel, artificial intelligence and parallel universes.' FINANCIAL TIMES, 'BOOKS OF THE YEAR 2019

From the acclaimed author of Stories of Your Life and Others - the basis for the Academy Award nominated film Arrival - comes a groundbreaking second collection of short fiction: nine stunningly original, provocative, and poignant stories. These are tales that tackle some of humanity's oldest questions along with new quandaries that only Ted Chiang 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 errors and the temptation of second chances. In the epistolary 'Exhalation', an alien scientist makes a shocking discovery with ramifications not just for his own people, but for all of reality. 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.

In Exhalation, Ted Chiang addresses the most fundamental of issues - What is the nature of the universe? What does it mean to be human? - alongside others that no one else has even imagined. And, each in its own way, the stories prove that complex and thoughtful science fiction can rise to new heights of beauty, meaning, and compassion.

Ted Chiang's fiction has won four Hugo, four Nebula, and four Locus awards, and he is the recipient of the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer and the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award. His debut collection, Stories of Your Life and Others, has been translated into twenty-one languages. He was born in Port Jefferson, New York, and currently lives near Seattle, Washington.

Great Read
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Brombachtal am 31.12.2020
Bewertet: Einband: Taschenbuch

This is a kind of unusual SF shortstory collection. While admittedly it is SF, you'll be likely as surprised as me. I found the book a great read and can highly recommend it.
