Praise

Praise for the Alliance-Union universe:

“[Downbelow Station] has a marvelous 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.” —Jo Walton, Hugo- and Nebula-award winning author of Among Others

“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

“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

Merchanter’s Luck is a story of transformation, not magical or mysterious but accomplished slowly through hard work. It is also about the power of misunderstanding and the courage of trust…. Filled with background details, customs, and a past, Merchanter’s Luck is another exceptional C.J. Cherryh novel.” —Science Fiction Review

“Cherryh tantalizes our minds with these enigmatic aliens, captures our hearts with her characters, and involves us completely with her mix of broad and narrow views of a culture’s rise. Once again, Cherryh proves herself a consistently thoughtful and entertaining writer.” —Publishers Weekly
