Ted Chiang: Arrival

American science fiction writer Ted Chiang went from cult status to a much wider readership when visionary director Denis Villeneuve turned his remarkable short story, ‘Story of Your Life’, into the film Arrival, starring Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and mysterious alien heptapods who just want to communicate the meaning of time to us. A thoughtful writer with a strong philosophical bent, Ted, who is based in Seattle, has published 15 short stories, novelettes and novellas and won numerous science fiction awards. He talks with science fiction and fantasy writer Karen Healey.
