Absolution Gap is making me hungry. Every time I read 'Quaiche' it comes out as 'Quiche'
I finished Diamond Dogs, Turquoise Days yesterday. Thoroughly enjoyed that. I did have a chuckle at the references to Cube and Raiders of the Lost Ark, among others.
I don't think it's too critical. Chasm City is not part of the main trilogy started by RS. I can't remember exactly where it fit in the timeline but it may even come before. Either way, it's basically "apart". I'd just note that I didn't care for CC, so it would have been a bad place to start for me, but a lot of people love it so it may work great for you. (And even RS wasn't the smoothest start - the short fiction would have been a better place for me.)I just started my first Reynolds, Chasm City. Should I read RS first?
Chasm City was the second of his books that I read and the one that really hooked me and made me read more of his books. I'd read Revelation Space before it but it hadn't done that much for me. I went back and re-read RS earlier this year, having read a few of his other books since Chasm City, and enjoyed it a hell of a lot more. I'd say read CC, then - if you like it - move on to RS, Redemption Ark and Absolution Gap.I just started my first Reynolds, Chasm City. Should I read RS first?
WARNING - for those that are going/or want to read the main trilogy, some of my comments may be deemed spoiling. So stop reading at this point!The main trilogy is RS, RA and AG with Galactic North providing a little more closure than AG.
