    I still prefer reading actual books to reading stuff on the screen, but I mostly read nonfiction. Some of my favorite fiction in recent times are the short stories of Ted Chiang. I highly recommend both his Stories of Your Life and Others and ExhalationStories of Your Life was adapted into the film Arrival, but the short story is far better even though Arrival is a pretty good movie. Stories of Your Life is his single best story in my opinion, but Exhalation has more stronger stories than his first compilation.

I am terribly out of touch with sci-fi. I had to look up Ted Chiang in Wikipedia to even know what genre he wrote in.

What do you like best about his stories? I can see he's won many awards.
