Ted Chiang was born in Port Jefferson, New York, and currently lives outside Seattle, Washington. In 1990 he won the Nebula Award for his first published story, Tower of Babylon. Following this triumph, his stories have won him numerous other awards, making him one of the most honoured writers in contemporary SF.
To celebrate the re-release of Ted Chiang's The Stories of Your Life and Others, the short story collection on which the Oscar winning film Arrival is based, we caught up with our Analytics Director to see why we should all read Ted Chiang.
