Praise

Praise for Downbelow Station:

Winner of the 1982 Hugo Award for Best Novel

“[Downbelow Station] has a marvellous perspective on humanity in the wider universe…. The plot is a complex maneuvering of factions and realignment of interests. There are space battles, and there are economics of space stations…. It’s a novel about desperate people, desperate spacestations, desperate aliens, a desperate spacefleet that’s out of choices.” —Tor.com

“A solid, vividly realized background; excellent characterization of humans and aliens; and an ability to keep a story moving… Intelligent space adventure, conceived and executed on a grand scale.” —Booklist

“Take one highly vulnerable space station. Pack it with realistic characters. And then start a war. You’ll end up with 1982’s Hugo winner, Downbelow Station, by C.J. Cherryh — and a hell of a story.” —io9

“Cherryh has created her strongest character and her best novel in a story of space exploration, colonization, and war.” —Questar

Full of imagination, action, and understandable, sympathetic characters….” —Analog 

“The well-drawn variety of backgrounds and motivations of the characters is the work’s strength.” —VOYA
 
Downbelow Station is a fascinating, complex deep-space-war political novel with a lot of subtle twists.” —Fantasiae
