Diamond Dogs, Turquoise Days by Alastair Reynolds
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Two really fascinating novellas here.
Diamond Dogs is the ULTIMATE in grizzly puzzle-solving dungeon hacking. Just add alien tech, deadly puzzle rooms, and a rag-tag team of transhumanist and alien-modded humans who are monsters in their own right, and set them to work at the problem. :)
I mean, it FEELS like a heist. But a super hard-SF heist.
Turquoise Days really sets us in an alien landscape that pushes the boundaries. Swimming in an ocean of alien minds? Getting transformed so that you become an uber-genius when it comes to math? And it has heart. Totally recommend.
