Zima Blue by Alastair Reynolds

Hello all, i bought this book in FP last week. It's another set of short stories all set outside of the Revelation Space universe.

I haven't started it yet, but just wondered if anyone else had. If so, what do you think? Is it as good as Galactic North?

Didn't think about cross-posting on this thread until I stumbled over it just now. I recently read it and talked about it on the short story thread.

Unless you're like me, you've probably finished it by now. :) What did you think? It'd be hard for me to say in terms of whether it's as good as Galactic North - I'd probably still give the edge to GN but it's close - I think Zima is more variable, having both better and worse stories. They're both really good overall, though.
