Stories of Your Life and Others

OK! These are great. Scifi short stories that are ACTUALLY the right length. Enough room to flesh out the cool idea that's in the story, short enough that you don't need to support a novel.

The title story here was the foundation for the movie Arrival, which I loved. There are a few that are just great, a few that are really strong, and one that just bothers my sensibilities. But I totally enjoyed this, and I'm looking forward to reading Chiang's new book that comes out this year.
