Gregory, July 20, 2008 (view all comments by Gregory)
First realize that it was about 2 and a half years since I read the novel and that names escape me at this point but the power of the narrative has lingered on....

This was the first of Reynolds' books that I had an opportunity to read set in the same universe as Revelation space dealing with the planet of Yellowstone and specifically the once great now fallen Chasm City. A plague that affects flesh and machine both has lead to the fall of a great civilization...or to the evolution of a stagnant one. The story focus follows a mercenary carrying more then one set of memories. His adventures are both into the strange altered landscape of Chasm and the past of human colonization of the stars. Both of the tales are brutal, compelling and human. Having further explored Alistair's universe this is still my favorite - maybe for the vague similarities to the first feelings of cyberpunk of the mid 80's and 90's or the reality of the characters both continuing and brief in their appearance. This is a tale well told in a fictional city I much would love to visit.
