Exhalation, by Ted Chiang October 2, 2019

A most exhilarating collection of short stories by Mr. Chiang, Exhalation has several completely captivating stories, both in concepts and characters. In one, an archeologist/paleontologist in a Biblically-literal world discovers that their Earth is not the center of the universe, throwing her into a crisis of confidence of, yes, Biblical proportions. In another, a father’s memory is supplemented with electronics and allows him to review his relationship with his daughter, throwing him into a crisis of conscience. In a third, quantum mechanics/many worlds dopplegangers find ways to communicate with highly mixed results.

There are more, but this should be enough to whet your appetite. Link above goes to Amazon, but sfpl.org has it also.
