Publisher's Summary

Diamond Dogs
The planet Golgotha - supposedly lifeless - resides in a remote star system, far from those inhabited by human colonists. It is home to an enigmatic machinelike structure called the Blood Spire, which has already brutally and systematically claimed the lives of one starship crew that attempted to uncover its secrets. But nothing will deter Richard Swift from exploring this object of alien origin.
Turquoise Days
In the seas of Turquoise live the Pattern Jugglers, the amorphous, aquatic organisms capable of preserving the memories of any human swimmer who joins their collective consciousness. Naqi Okpik devoted her life to studying these creatures - and paid a high price for swimming among them. Now she may be the only hope for the survival of the species - and of every person living on Turquoise.

So disappointed

This is a collection of disjointed short stories masquerading as a book. I had hoped for a strong continuation of the story.

Someone said, in a review of a different book, that they could listen to John Lee read a Phone-Book and stay interested.. I have always agreed with that! But I think this book was about as close as you'd care to get to listening to a phone-book being narrated. It seems to take some tiny parts of Reynolds' other Books, and jams them together. I think it was supposed to add detail to some sub-plots and story lines from other books, but the effect, at least to me, was that it may have been some unfinished story bits laying around (or maybe things that got edited out of other books), that got published as a stand-alone book.

Not Reynolds' best work... But Hey, John Lee reads it! ;)
