Tower of Babylon

A Novella by

Hugo Best Novellette (nominee)
Nebula Awards Best Novellette
A Vintage Shorts "Short Story Month" Selection

Together with a crew of other miners and cart-pullers, Hillalum is recruited to climb the Tower of Babylon and unearth what lies beyond the vault of heaven. During his journey, Hillalum discovers entire civilizations of tower-dwellers on the tower - there are those who live inside the mists of clouds, those who raise their vegetables above the sun, and those who have spent their lives under the oppressive weight of an endless, white stratum at the top of the universe.

"Tower of Babylon" is a rare gem - a winner of the prestigious Nebula award, the first story Ted Chiang ever published, and the brilliant opening piece to Chiang's much-lauded first collection, Stories of Your Life and Others, which is soon to be a major motion picture starring Amy Adams.

An ebook short.
