"Great Wall of Mars" - a Revelation Space tale
"Beyond the Aquila Rift" - have you ever dialed a wrong number - or misentered a web site address and ended up somewhere strange and amazing. Imagine doing so in space flight.
"Minla's Flower" - a story that Trekkers and the Prime Directive would appreciate.
"Fury" - a great story and underappreciated.
"Diamond Dogs" - a story about obsession and linked with other short stories in Revelation Space. A novella length tale - should be read with "Turquoise Days" [found elsewhere]
and several others.
The thing about sci-fi is that a good story will stay with you for a long time. Case in point, in no particular order, Minla's flower, Diamond dogs, Fury, Trauma Pod, Weather. And of course, Zima Blue and Beyond Aquila Rift, the two shorts that introduced me to Alastair Reynolds.
Since then, I have moved on to read more of his books. All in all, a great sci-fi anthology from a great writer.
The Rift story and the pirate story were particularly intriguing.
Are humans ready for deep space?
Ready or not it’s coming.

So obviously I had to start reading Reynolds' stuff. Picked up this anthology and now I'm halfway through (just finished Diamond Dogs) and I'm excitedly picking up a bunch of his other stuff!
It's nice to revisit them but buyer beware.
Would highly recommend this book 👍
