Ted Chiang collectors rejoice! Super rare  edition and gorgeous Ted Chiang story before he blew up! Kind of crazy this was published before President Obama was shouting his praises of the movie Arrival was made after one of his stories!

Blurb: “Most of our readers probably know the name Ted Chiang already, but since this is first work of fiction to appear here we should note that Mr. Chiang is the author of such stories as “Division of Zero,” “Hell Is The Absence of God” and the "Tower of Babylon"; his short fiction has been collected in Stories of Your Life and Others. His new story — which is going to be published shortly by Subterranean Press in a hardcover chapbook — concerns a Baghdad merchant. Mr. Chiang says the story was inspired in part by the work of physicist Kip Thorne.”
