Free Fiction Friday: Ted Chiang

Ted Chiang’s story from our September 2007 issue, “The Merchant and the Alchemist’s Gate,” was one of the most talked-about stories of the year. It landed on several awards ballots, and is currently a finalist for the Nebula Award and British Science Fiction Association Award. Because of the former nomination, we placed the complete text of the story on our website. Because of the latter nomination, Starship Sofa has made it available as a podcast [MP3 link]. So, pick your poison–text or audio–and enjoy!
