Galactic North by Alastair Reynolds

This is a collection of short stories set in the Revelation Space Universe. There's eight stories and an afterword. Of course, I read the afterword first. It's very interesting -- tells how he started writing as a teen and where he gets ideas from, etc. I liked all the stories, and most of them fit into places in the books. One story shared parts from Chasm City, another story in the collection, and "Diamond Dogs." If you've read the Revelation Space semi-series, you'll enjoy this collection.
