SFWA Grand Master Cherryh returns to the Hugo award winning Alliance Union Universe with a thrilling entry in her far reaching sci fi sagaYears after Sol has lagged behind other great megastations like Pell and Cyteen Alpha station receives news of an incoming ship with no identification The denizens of Alpha wait anxiously for news on the outsiders each with their own suspicionsRoss Remember when Star Wars The Phantom Menace first came out and the opening crawl started out by talking about trade routes and tax policy and everybody went Hur hur hur trade routes because that couldn t possibly be the start of an exciting adventure in spaceWell this is a book that consists almost entirely of discussions and reflections about trade policy and the inner workings of bureaucracies and that takes place almost entirely on the dockside of a single past its prime station and which is utterly compelling and maintains an almost white knuckle tension throughoutThe time Well based on previously published timelines I d estimate somewhere in the mid to late 23rd century these are the earliest published events in any of Cherryh s AllianceUnion novels predating Devil to the Belt and Downbelow Station and the rest of the MerchanterCompany Wars books The place Alpha Station the first of the Earth Company built stations built back before FTL was a thing using a station core sent on a sublight pusher ship and being itself the first seed of humanity s interstellar expansion now sinking uietly into decrepitude and irrelevance it survives only because it s the interface for contact with Earth which at the time of this book has not found a successful FTL route to Alpha or to any other nearby star system FTL at this point has hard limits on how far one can travel in a single jump and Sol is just a bit too far from its stellar neighbors for a single jump but maybe if somebody could locate a convenient interstellar mass point that could be used as a way station and in the meantime the spacers have gone further and further off founding additional stations with names you ll recognize like Mariner Viking Pell and Cyteen and discovering the FTL drive that threatens to cut Earth out of the picture entirely and leave the Hinder Stars stations Alpha chief amongst them to founderAnd for the past couple of decades all of Alpha s resources at the insistence of new arrivals sent from Earth and to the detriment of pretty much everybody else on the station have been poured into the construction of a very large merchant ship the Rights of ManAgainst this backdrop Ross and

s read any of these books previously the Finity s End an arrival which threatens to upset the delicate euilibrium that s kept Alpha and her associated ships alive functioningThis is a very interesting book to read if you ve as have I read a fair number of the earlier AllianceUnion books particularly Downbelow Station I m not prepared to say that it retcons events in the previous books but at the very least it certainly recontextualizes them not least by giving probably the most sympathetic view we ve had of Earth Company personnel well a few of them others are right prats and by showing that
