Ted Chiang, called The Great Silence. Chiang's originality is something special. In style no word is wasted. The story left me a bit sad, and gave me something to think about that keeps coming back into my brain. What is it "about?"

It is available in Kindle and also online at the address in the Wikipedia article referenced above.
