I highly recommend Ted Chiang. I really enjoyed "Story of your Life" available in this short story collection of the same name: http://www.amazon.com/Stories-Your-Life-Others-Chiang/dp/193...

Some of the stuff is a but uneven but he's written some of the most thought-provoking sci-fi I've read in some time.

Looks like "Story of Your Life" is going to be made into a movie. http://www.tor.com/blogs/2013/10/ted-chiang-story-of-your-li...

Hmm. I'd like to say I'm excited but I really don't see how they will capture that story effectively in film.

Can you explain Story of your Life? To me it just doesn't make sense, our consciousnesses don't work like that - which undermines any point it might be making.

I last heard his name when a good friend recommended "Hell is the Absence of God" to me.

I later tried to recommend it to my mother, but found myself incapable of doing so.
