Combining sci-fi awesomeness with linguistic cleverness, Babel-17 is about an awesome character called Rydra Wong. She’s a poet as her day job, but also has a great expertise in language and symbols. A strange alien language is discovered, and Wong is tasked with translating it. When she isn’t able to figure it out at home, she assembles a team of aliens to travel out into the stars and try to find the source. Totally rad for anyone who loves aliens AND language.
