    Galactic North Reynolds excels at shorter lengthsOriginally posted at Fantasy LiteratureHaving read all the full length novels in Alastair Reynolds REVELATION SPACE series, I knew I d eventually get to his shorter works set in the same dark and complex universe The main novels are Revelation Space, Redemption Ark, Chasm City, Absolution Gap, and The ...

    While I m still working through the audio of Redemption Ark I thought I might check out some of the Rev Space short stories he published earlier in this collection.I m glad I decided to read these in publication order because there is some crossover between the stories as well as the the two shorts in Diamond Dogs Turquoise Days I was able to appreciate cameo appearances from characters who were written earlier which would otherwise jus

    Galactic North by Alastair Reynolds is a selection of 8 short stories set in Reynolds Revelation Space universe All of the stories are good.


  4. Claudia Claudia says:

    Great addition to Revelation Space universe Even if not all stories are related to the trilogy, they are set in the same universe and bring in some new details related to some of the events and concepts used in the seriesGreat Wall of Marsthe story of Clavain from way back when he became a Conjoiner, set in the events on Mars and also his first encounter with Felka A beautiful story about honour and betrayal 5 5Glacialgripping tale about Clav

    I can t get enough of the Revelation Space universe I just can t This future history feels almost as real and detailed and nuanced to me at this point as real history does I ve already read most of the novels in this series, and with some trepidation moved on to this collection of short stories So many authors who excel in longer forms do poorly with short stories, and vice versa I needn t have worried Reynolds is, if anything, evenskilled at th


  6. Bradley Bradley says:

    I m supremely happy to know that Reynolds as a short story writer is just as good as Reynolds as a novelist Some of the stories were unabashedly nostalgic for me, but others, such as the last one, Galactic North, really bit deep into my subconscious and wouldn t let go I wantedandof that one, but there were a few others that even verged on the mythical I m thinking of a certain medical ship, not to mention a fascination of worms.Strangely enough, I

    A good mixed bag, but the 1999 story Galactic North is fascinating as it is the map of most of the stories from Revelation Space Weather is the best of the bunch.Great Wall of Mars 2000 4.5 starGreat stuff Fast pacing, good characters, short but wonderful early days of Revelation SpaceGlacial 2001 4.5 starWonderful continuation of Clavain and Galiana, this time on an ice world, with a murder mystery Truly great stuff.A Spy in Europa 1997 3.5 starA sho

    I just finished Galactic North the other day, and am now looking forward to reading The Prefect It s nice to be once again reminded why I enjoyed reading his Revelation Space series A few of the stories in here I d read before was The Great Wall of Mars in Interzone but I still enjoyed them second time around The story Galactic North seemed a bit disjointed, but I still enjoyed the big space and huge breadths of time All of it huge Gothic spaceships, wea

    Great Wall of Mars providesbackground for Nevil Clavain, his dealings with Galiana, Felka and the Conjoiners and how he became one himself as well as some early Revelation Space universe history A great story about war, diplomacy and betrayal5 stars Glacial also features Clavain and partly deals with his attempts to adjust to being a Conjoiner But it s first and foremost a Whodunit mystery and a pretty good one at that The icy atmosphere of a planet approac

    There s just nobody like Alastair I ve had this on my shelf for a while, and I was worried that I might have forgotten crucial finer details from the Revelation Space trilogy and Chasm City in the post interim, but I just trusted the process and got immersed in the Ultras and Conjoiners and Demarchists and my mind boggled all over again at the possibilities of the far future s centuries long traveling and free exchange of identities across flesh, machinery, pl
