I have a copy of Stories of your life and others and while I'm not a fan of everything in there, there are a few gems that I've reread several times. A lot of his writing does seem to be idea-driven, though, so if that's not your cup of tea then I'd maybe not invest in a second book of his :)

I just read The Lifecycle of Software Objects, and I can't say I thought it was good (still going through his work as part of the IRL book club). It's apparently his longest work, and his discomfort with characters and plot really shows there.
