really liked it
bookshelves: fiction, short-stories

Inventive, cerebral piece about the mechanics of Being. A philosophical-sci-fi-lit-fic mash-up. Art and science collide in a rough and tender embrace, and change each others disposal sets of lungs out with a sense of communal connection. Chiang faces the impending void of the universe with a skip in his step and in his heartbeat, wresting awe and meaning from it all before the great collapse.

Joshua Nomen-Mutatio Thanks, y'all. Rattled it off right after listening to the author's oddly warm and robot read of it, which I linked in my Reading Progress above, for those interested.
