Damien Walter on Ted Chiang

"[Ted] Chiang is sometimes described as a literary science fiction writer, but that’s a lazy label in which 'literary' means 'good' – a fairer one would be to say that Chiang is the Platonic ideal of a science fiction writer: his writing displays no particular interest in style, and yet it shines with a brutal, minimalist elegance. Every sentence is the perfect incision in the dissection of the idea at hand."
--Damien Walter at The Guardian
