  1. An inspiring choice for our subplot event. I should try more SF and because I really enjoyed the short stories in this book. Ted Chiang has great vision and range. He allows us to experience life in biblical times when life was simpler and more innocent, as well as the future and how technology affects our minds and bodies. I particularly enjoyed the story about calli and the important debates about how people are treated based on their appearance. I completely recommend it. We had a range of responses, not all stories were well received, the maths problem was questionable and may have detracted from the message of the story. The story “Hell is the Absence Of God” received an excellent review and I will definitely be reading that one!
