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.

not a continuation of any other book :(

I think it's misleading to call this book 6 of Revelation space. Although these two short stories are interesting in their own right, other than existing in the same universe they have no bearing on the other books. And while I enjoyed the stories, I would have been happier if it was called: "Tales From Revelation Space". That said, high scores for awesome storytelling and a great narrative performance.

Two short stories, not worth the price

I love Reynold's books as a whole, but this disappointed me. I expected that a $22 book would be longer than this. Both stories seem like they were just the set up for a larger plot.

Two Brilliant Stories

The stories were brilliant, left you wanting more. I was so engaged that I didn't take a break, work passed by very quickly.
