Stories of Your Life and Others by Ted Chiang
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
5) SEVENTY-TWO LETTERS ★★★½☆
“When he was a child, Robert’s favorite toy was a simple one, a clay doll that could do nothing but walk forward.“
Odd. A world where the industrial revolution seems to have happened through the ascend of many different types of golems. I admit to some skimming. The story idea was a fascinating one though. I don‘t want to give anything away, but the direction of the story was surprising.
