Arrival by Ted Chiang( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new film, Arrival, starring Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker, is based on one of the stories in this collection. 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 Earth 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 Baghdad merchant discovers an alchemical device that can send a traveler back in time 20 years. Despite the alchemist's warning that "what is made cannot be unmade," and three illustrative tales about others' attempts to alter the past, the merchant is determined to return to an earlier time to save his long-dead wife

Tower of Babylon from Stories of your life and others by Ted Chiang( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Together with a crew of other miners and cart-pullers, Hillalum is recruited to climb the Tower of Babylon and unearth what lies beyond the vault of heaven. During his journey, Hillalum discovers entire civilizations of tower-dwellers on the tower—there are those who live inside the mists of clouds, those who raise their vegetables above the sun, and those who have spent their lives under the oppressive weight of an endless, white stratum at the top of the universe. "Tower of Babylon" is a rare gem—a winner of the prestigious Nebula award, the first story Ted Chiang ever published, and the brilliant opening piece to Chiang's much-lauded first collection, Stories of Your Life and Others, which is soon to be a major motion picture starring Amy Adams
Arrival : stories of your life mti by Ted Chiang( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Previously published as Stories of Your Life and Others. Includes "Story Of Your Life," the basis for the major motion picture Arrival, starring Amy Adams, Forest Whitaker, Jeremy Renner, and directed by Denis Villeneuve. "Shining, haunting, mind-blowing tales ... 'ed Chiang is so exhilarating, so original, so stylish he just leaves you speechless."--Junot Diaz Ted Chiang has long been known as one of the most powerful science fiction writers working today. Offering readers the dual delights of the very strange and the heartbreakingly familiar, Arrival presents characters who must confront sudden change. In "Story of Your Life," which provides the basis for the film Arrival, alien lifeforms suddenly appear on Earth. When a linguist is brought in to help communicate with them and discern their intentions, her new knowledge of their language and its nonlinear structure allows her to see future events and all the joy and pain they may bring. In each story of this incredible collection, with sharp intelligence and humor, Ted Chiang examines what it means to be alive in a world marked by uncertainty, but also by wonder
