Ted Chiang - Exhalation

We are so thrilled to be launching acclaimed science fiction writer Ted Chiang’s new collection of short stories, Exhalation!

We’ll have more details about the event soon, but mark your calendars now—and consider joining Science Fiction & Fantasy Book Club led by Django Wexler in April to discuss Ted Chiang’s Stories of Your Life and Others, which includes the story that inspired the movie Arrival.

Advance Praise for Exhalation:

“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 Reviews (starred review)

“Ted Chiang has no contemporary peers when it comes to the short story form. 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, author of Dark Matter

“Ted Chiang’s stories are lean, relentless, and incandescent.” —Colson Whitehead, author of The Underground Railroad

“Ted Chiang is one of the best science fiction writers in the field today.” —The Verge

“[Chiang] is so good that this book qualifies as an event.” —Newsday

“Chiang produces deeply moving drama from fascinating first premises... These stories are brilliant experiments, and his commitment to exploring deep human questions elevates them to among the very best science fiction.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
