Read in July, 2009

The thing I particularly enjoyed about this set of 2 novellas is the convincing and well-conceived portrayal of a totally alien race. Many authors make superficial "nods" toward alienization of a new race or species; Coleman and Bills seem to have spent serious time refleting on the evolution, cultural, and foundational aspects that go into creating a new species. It was tremendously satisfying to sit back and observe them behaving normally and interacting with one another, deducing the underpinnings of their society by observation, without being condescended to and told that nictating their eyelids denoted respect.
