              Exhalation (Audio CD / Audio, Unabridged edition)

              Read by Chiang, Ted; Ballerini, Edoardo; Landon, Amy; Hoffman, Dominic

              • RRP: $44.99

              A groundbreaking new collection of short fiction: nine stunningly original, provocative and poignant stories. 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 the temptation of second cha...nces. In the epistolary `Exhalation', an alien scientist makes a shocking discovery with ramifications not just for his own people, but for all of reality. And in `The Lifecycle of Software Objects', a woman cares for an artificial intelligence over 20 years, elevating a faddish digital pet into what might be a true living being. Also included are two previously unpublished stories: `Omphalos' and `Anxiety Is the Dizziness of Freedom'. In Exhalation, Ted Chiang wrestles with the oldest questions on earth - What is the nature of the universe? What does it mean to be human? - and ones 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.

              Arrival (EPUB ebook)

              By Chiang, Ted

              With his masterful first collection, multiple-award-winning author Ted Chiang deftly blends human emotion and scientific rationalism in eight remarkably diverse stories, all told in his trademark precise and evocative prose. From a soaring Babylonian tower that connects a flat E...arth with the firmament above, to a world where angelic visitations are a wondrous and terrifying part of everyday life; from a neural modification that eliminates the appeal of physical beauty, to an alien language that challenges our very perception of time and reality. . . Chiang's rigorously imagined fantasia invites us to question our understanding of the universe and our place in it. A new film, Arrival, starring Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker, is based on one of the stories in this collection.
