A Deepness In The Sky

The prequel to A Fire Upon The Deep. This time, the aliens aren't as beautifully imaginative or interesting, but the human characters are much better, as are the (very human) villains. The ending wraps up a little too pat, with everyone paired off, but there are Shakespeare plays that do that too, so I suppose it's in the grand tradition of story-tellers.
