The Truth of Fact, the Truth of Feeling (2013)
language
English

review 1: This short story is split into two parts. The first is written by a technology journalist musing on the impact of a new technology (focused around improving our recall of past events), the second is a story within his story showing the impact of a missionary in early 20th Century...

review 1: TLOSF has ideas for a dozen different sci-fi books on AI. It is so dense and replete with ideas that your head is going to buzz oddly after reading just a few pages in this short novella because you will need time to process Chiang's relentless but oddly structured imagination. A...

Die Hölle ist die Abwesenheit Gottes (2012)

review 1: Why only four stars? One reason - the story "The Story of Your Life". It's actually a good narrative yet IMO only someone with some linguistic knowledge can really dive into it. But if this is the case it's exciting. But even then - the mixing of a mother's recollection with the ...
