Product description


Praise for Diamond Dogs, Turquoise Days

"Fans of Reynolds's brand of noirish sci-fi will find enjoyment here."--The Kansas City Star

"Diamond Dogs is a rare fusion of hard SF and splatter-gore horror, a disturbing tale which nonetheless tempts the reader to keep going...Turquoise Days is an extraordinarily well-written novella, and a commendable addition to Reynolds's richly imagined universe."--SciFi Dimensions

"Astronomer Reynolds's two far-future space exploration novellas...confirm his mastery of noir SF...brilliantly executed parables."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Nonstop thrills...showcases Reynolds's flair for exotic locales, startling concepts, and crisp language."--Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine

"[Diamond Dogs is an] exhilarating first person account space caper [that] feels more like a gothic planetary noir with fabulous amoral mercenary antiheroes...[Turquoise Days is an] exciting outer space thriller [that] hooks the audience...The well written stories keep the audience locked into one sitting...fabulous."--Midwest Book Review

"Reynolds illuminates more of his vividly conceived universe and explores the individuals and groups that bring those worlds to life."--Library Journal
