Reviews

`Like such eclectic predecessors as Philip K. Dick... Jorge Luis Borges, Ursula K. Le Guin, Margaret Atwood, Haruki Murakami, China Mieville, and Kazuo Ishiguro, Chiang has explored conventional tropes of science fiction in highly unconventional ways... Magically inventive... each [story is]... likely to linger in the memory the way riddles may linger - teasing, tormenting, illuminating, thrilling.' * New Yorker * `[Chiang] is so good that this book qualifies as an event.' * Newsday * `Chiang is a master. . . . The Alice Munro of science fiction.' * LitHub * `Chiang is always thought provoking, and his latest collection is no exception.' * Library Journal starred review * `Explores emotional and physical landscapes with precise and incisive prose... Chiang remains one of the most skilled stylists in SF, and this will appeal to genre and literary-fiction fans alike.' * Booklist starred review * Each of his devastating stories mines little pieces of humanity from unexpected points of view. * Vulture * `This stellar collection... begins with an instant classic... Visionary speculative stories that will change the way readers see themselves and the world around them: This book delivers in a big way.' * Kirkus starred review * `Chiang produces deeply moving drama from fascinating first premises... These stories are brilliant experiments, and [Chiang's] commitment to exploring deep human questions elevates them to among the very best science fiction.' * Publisher's Weekly starred review * `Meticulously crafted and innovative short fiction... Chiang's stories are uniformly notable for a fusion of pure intellect and molten emotion... narrative[s] of refined human sensitivity and soulfulness... While this combination represents the ideal definition and practice of all science fiction, it's seldom achieved... Masterful and striking... plucks both heartstrings and gray matter in equal measure.' * Washington Post * `Ted Chiang writes with such a matter-of-fact grace and visionary power that one simply takes on faith that his worlds and his characters exist, whether they are human or robot or parrot; he is the rare author who makes me feel, also, that he believes in his readers, in our integrity and our imagination.' * Karen Russell * `Ted Chiang has no contemporary peers... His name deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as Carver, Poe, Borges, and Kafka. Every story is a universe. Every story is a diamond. You will inhale Exhalation in a single, stunned sitting, because true genius doesn't come along nearly as often as advertised. This is the real thing.' * Blake Crouch * `Ted Chiang's stories are lean, relentless, and incandescent.' * Colson Whitehead * We all know Ted Chiang is a fucking genius, but: Ted Chiang is a fucking genius. * Carmen Maria Machado * The best science-fiction writer of his generation. * The Economist * Chiang's writing shines with a brutal, minimalist elegance. Every sentence is the perfect incision in the dissection of the idea at hand . . . Chiang is all the more conspicuous for his absence from all forms of authorial self-promotion . . . Perhaps he's simply busy doing what he does best - writing great stories. * Guardian * Ted Chiang has gained a rapturous following within the genre and beyond. One of the most influential science-fiction writers of his generation, his stories are unusually moving. * New Yorker *
