Diamond Dogs Turquoise Days - Alastair Reynolds

Two excellent novella style works, here. The first is about an alien artifact that is a complicates of series of mathematical puzzles that get harder as they go on, and the desperate lengths people will go to to try and understand it.

The second is about two sisters and their relationship with the biology of the strange ocean on their planet, as well as the unstable political situation they live in.

Fine work.
