Turquoise Days

by Alastair Reynolds
Release date: 2002
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fictionspace opera

A novella.

The Pattern Jugglers of planet Turquoise — an alien entity that takes the form of floating organisms on the surface of a planetwide sea. Turquoise Days is the story of Naqi Okpik, a human scientist who must come to terms with the mysteries of the Jugglers while dealing with an external threat to the planet — a threat to the Jugglers themselves. But are the Pattern Jugglers conscious life forms, and can they protect themselves against this alien menace? Turquoise Days plays out against the same turbulent, far future, deep-space background as Alastair Reynolds's novels — Revelation Space, Chasm City, and Redemption Ark — and novella-length stories "Great Wall of Mars" and "Diamond Dogs."

Turquoise Days, a 30,000-word, 78-page novella, kicks off a new line of quality trade paperbound chapbooks from Golden Gryphon Press. Each copy is signed and numbered by the author on the limitation page.
