Read 2017, favourite. ( )

Cherryh's books are never really what you expect. This one is mainly about bureaucratic indifference. A pair of independent asteroid miners are in the wrong place at the wrong time, there's an accident, and one of them dies and the other is left adrift in space. The latter miner miraculously survives, but then has to endure a government that wants more than anything to cover this up, and peers who would rather claim salvage rights on his ship than save his life. He's constantly being told that he's crazy (he does appear to have PTSD) and that his version of what happened is a hallucination. One miner actually does want to help him get back on his feet, he's consistently referred to as an "old-timer" whose values don't mesh up with the current reality. Thanks to the one unselfish guy in the entire story, as well as a fortuitous political shift on the larger scale, the victimized miner is vindicated and actually has a chance to live out a normal life.

A couple of asteroid miners find a derelict, and a survivor. More would be a spoiler. It being a Cherryh, I believe it to be a good book, but I can't remember much about it. ( )

This book wasn't bad, but I wasn't overly impressed. This fits into her existing universe, but in an odd way. This book is about a familiar sci-fi subject - independent asteroid miners. Two of them discover a derelict ship, a survivor of a crash who's partner is missing. Unfortunately, the issue of missing time seems to be a very critical theme, but in the end it is mostly glossed over. I did not find this as gripping or suspenseful as the cover blurbs indicate I should. The characters seemed half formed, and the lack of action for 90% of the book really dragged it down. All of the real revelations and discoveries happen off-scene, and the resolution is disappointing. ( )

An almost dead miner is found out in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter - he says foul play over tagging a good 'find' - a really big rock - but he is also out of his head with grief and exhaustion and fear about the loss of his partner. The big mining company ASTEX is so powerful it's hard for a little independent to fight anything. The two who find him end up taking him on, even after they have claimed his ship as salvage, one willingly and one not. The reader is sure of the foul play, from the start, and the story is in watching how the situation unravels. It's an interesting period too, in the Cherryh universe - when the Earth Company is just building the huge military state-of-the-art starships that play so largely in Downbelow and later novels about the Alliance Union. Here we are seeing from the inside the corruption and political chaos from Earth and its environs. It's a gritty read, less 'fun' than other Cherryh's, but an interesting angle. **** ( )
