Exhalation Online

Via io9: Night Shade Books put Ted Chiang’s Hugo-nominated short story “Exhalation” online in various formats.

It has long been said that air (which others call argon) is the source of life. This is not in fact the case, and I engrave these words to describe how I came to understand the true source of life and, as a corollary, the means by which life will one day end.


“Exhalation” is 404 at Nightshade Books but is currently available online at Lightspeed Magazine.
