Okay, I've enjoyed these little side trips the Expanse authors have taken us on, but this one?

Holy shit, this one just opens up an entire new world of stories.

I'm not going to spoil a single thing here, except to say, I can't wait to see what they do with this development. ( )

Summer 2019;

I somehow never finished this one, and in deciding to delve back in all pellmell I picked this up and read it from beginning to end, even though I'm far further into the books than this. As these author's do, I swept away in a brand new way, through the eyes of the child and her innocent, idealistic, and sometimes very short-sited, understanding of life-and-death, colonization, enforced (and even "volun-told") conscription, politics, and the decision adults make about children.

As a true and deeper, forever lover, of my lost but never forgotten Proto-Miller, even, I found myself very drawn to the dogs, and the endless uncertainties about them, and the open door ending as pertained to the dogs, the bridges, and children. It's a testament forever to this world, and its writing, that even with so little a piece I need to know what happened to everyone still. How they felt about it, what they chose, and did after. ( )

I think The Expanse short fiction has largely fallen into two categories: that which is kind of interesting if you already have buy-in on the characters and setting (The Butcher of Anderson Station, Drive) and that which isn't even that interesting then (Gods of Risk, The Churn). But I felt the last one, The Vital Abyss, was pretty good, and Strange Dogs is the best yet. It's the first I would say stands completely alone, in that I would recommend it as a piece of solid sf even to someone who hasn't been reading The Expanse. It's set on one of the extrasolar colonies, the one the rebel Martians fled to after Nemesis Games, and focuses on a young girl who lives there. Though she was born on Earth, it's this planet that's really her home, and unlike her parents, she doesn't mind that the Martian military won't let them return to Earth through the gate. The book follows her experience as a child on this planet, especially with the planet's strange wildlife-- the "dogs" of the title. (I thought the title was going to be a metaphor, but no, this book is literally about strange dogs.) It's really well written and well observed and very off-putting in a good way, a great slice of how children think and process grief. And if you've read all the other Expanse stories, it's even better, giving you some idea of what Admiral Duarte is like. It has sort of an open ending, and I can't decide if I want to see it pay off in one of the novels later on, or if it works just fine as is, a weird little side jaunt in this big old universe.

Life in the colonies meets a ghost story. Or rather, a Pet Sematary story. :) What better use for the strange alien techs can we devise?

All said, this short novella, perhaps novelette, paves the road for the strange, strange universe to come. :)

Not too bad. Slow because it *IS* a ghost story, but good for all that. :) Woof! Or, I should say, *chitter* ( )

Otra novela corta de la serie de The Expanse. Metadona para los que somos adictos. No es lo mismo que la trama principal pero algo nos vale.
En esta historia vemos el mundo a través de una madurísima niña de 10 años que descubre unos animales muy peculiares en el mundo de Laconia, a donde ha llegado con sus padres en la primera oleada de científicos tras cruzar la Puerta (recordemos que Laconia es el mundo donde se ha refugiado el almirante rebelde Duarte de la Armada Marciana). La historia decepciona porque acaba demasiado pronto y explicando demasiado poco. No todo se puede explicar pero hay algunos elementos introducidos por los autores que piden a gritos una explicación que nunca llega. ( )
