    // Item is in brand new condition, read once // Condition: 10/10 // RTP at Kinokuniya SGD 27.82 // Meet up for this item 👍🏼 Stories of Your Life and Others is a collection of short stories by Ted Chiang originally published in 2002. This was reprinted in 2016, as a movie tie-in edition for the adaptation of "Story of Your Life" as the film Arrival and also called "Arrival". "If there is a single recurrent theme in Ted Chiang’s work, it’s the attempt to square the circle between human fantasies of belief, and the perceived certainties of a rational, scientific worldview. There’s a strong sense in Chiang’s work that he sees conflicts of faith v reason, or freedom v determinism, as illusionary. That if we can simply see clearly enough, all conflicts give way to harmony. Chiang’s rigour and logic take him to a point of mysticism." - https://www.theguardian.com/books/booksblog/2016/nov/11/ted-chiang-science-fiction-genius-arrival-writer Tags: science fiction movie adaptation books new
