A whirl of worlds.

This series is in many ways Cherryh's most accessible one. She takes on one species after another and makes them real as a dime. And comprehensible by their own lights. Without ever making them into humans with fur or feathers. It's a wonderful space opera, which I normally hate. But here, when the alliens are so alien and yet, somehow people you know, how can you resist?
Some whiny bits in the dialog. Listen to it and see what you think. It didn't ruin my enjoyment of the books.But you might feel differently.

Jury is still out

Sequel to "Chanur's Venture." It continues where that book leaves off. Unfortunately, like that book, this one doesn't end properly. The ending here is slightly more reasonable than what the publisher did with "Chanur's Venture".
